Joseph & Capitolia are buried at Juniper Cemetery, Ellsworth, ME.
Joseph G. Varnumd. Dec. 2, 1892 48y GAR Capitolia J., w/o Josephd. Mar. 4, 1932 73y
I've never seen the name written as Farnham, always Varnum. Did Joseph change it legally?
Capitola's (different sp. from gravestone) obit in the Ellsworth American of March 9,1932 said she was the daughter of Mr. & Mrs. Andrew Goodell and was survived by a sister, Mrs. Iris Fletcher, and a step-son, James Varnum of Seal Harbor, besides many nieces & nephews. I couldn't find an obit for Joseph, just a listing in the VR column.
Capitolia's probate papers (Hancock county probate case #12745), petition for probate of will, say she died the 4th day of March,1932, leaving no husband and as her next of kin Iris B. Fletcher- Plt. # 8-sister and 5 nieces & nephews who were the children of her deceased brother Ancel Goodell. Her stepson was not listed.
