    Drinking and partying in a cemetery….. and then removing a grave stone and throwing it in a swamp…..what a bunch of upstanding young men…your parents must be so very proud……

  • I’d still like to know who took Rudy Vallee’s original stone in Westbrook long ago.

      My college fraternity would have borrowed it….sobered up and returned it.

      You are right.  Maine is full of ‘kids’ who are in their 20s through 50s.

    When you commit this type of stupid crime in a big city you can eventually fade away and nobody will care. In a small town like Houlton- you’ll never live this down.

    I hope they have to pay all the restitution for the damages done and it looks like Mr. Houltons grave stone has seen better days.(can’t imagine why with punks like these vandalizing it) The four dudes who love to party in cemeteries can also help raise the money to buy him another marker? Or I would hope at least they should be doing community  services, not drunk in public again or obviously a cemetery and perhaps help the other cemetaries in the area with maintenance/care taking.. They seem to know a lot about moving headstones and hanging around in ’em.

      Actually, I think his stone looks great for having been through 180 Maine winters!

        Are you sure County Escapee that it’s the original? A lot of times when they are that old they aren’t. Just wondering!

        • County Escapee

          Good point, but I can only be sure of death and taxes.  Being a fan of old stones (many with the age of the deceased down to the day!), I’m pretty sure.  :)

            Yes I like to visit cemeteries and look at all the old sayings and carvings. I’ve been to this one and the old part up on the hill is beautiful. It has that Mt. Hope Cemt. feel to it.

            For some old and interesting stuff, one of my favorites is right here in downtown Boston:

            Thanx I’ll check it out. Yes I have been to some in Boston and the area. I’ve been to that small one which is the oldest in the nation.(documented and/or still marked at least)  I can’t think of the name offhand or the street.  I used to live in Methuen,Salem area.

    I’m from HOULTON. These people need to be water boarded in the Boy with the Leaking Boot Fountain.
