Cemeteries can tell some interesting stories, if you take the time to read them. In 2006, when she first visited the Federal Street Cemetery in Greenfield, Sarah Doyle was looking for the gravestone of Dexter Marsh, the day laborer credited for discovering birdlike footprints in a slab of sandstone on Bank Row in 1835. Looking around, she was surprised to recognize several names she had come across in researching the life of Dexter Marsh: Alvords, Newcombs, Tuckermans, and others.
