I found on the findagrave site where Louis E. Ather is listed. b. 1878 d. 1913. I believe his father was Joseph Ather and mother Sophia(Larivee). He is bu: Hope Cemetery in Waterbury. Would like to get a full date of death for requesting his obituary.

Thanking you in advance,

Susan-I could not find Louis Ather. Do you know if he died in Vermont? He should be listed if he died in the state. I thought about calling the Waterbury Town Clerk but had heard that they lost all their records during Hurricane Irene last summer. I did see the Find-A-Grave with just the year date for the death. My sister lives in Waterbury and I can call her to ask who might be in charge of Hope Cemetery in Waterbury.

That is so sad to know about all the records getting destroyed. I went to the town clerk's office a few
years back. Maybe I can get more information at the
Middlesex Vital Records. If you can find more info it
will be much appreciated.

Susan...

Sorry to be late - storms most of the day and just got my computer going again. I don't like lightening! We did have strong winds and lots of rain but no lightening. My sister in Waterbury just sent me an e-mail - she has her son, daughter-in-law and two little ones there and she said she would call me tomorrow or I will get ahold of her and be in touch. It is sad but I have heard that Waterbury was not the only one who lost loads of things like records. They had their told ones in the basement - I think that is what Penny (sister) told me last year. A good friend of hers was the Town Clerk but think she retired not too long ago. I will see what I might be able to find. Penny will know the cemetery well to and she will know who is in charge of that. Middlesex should have a copy of the death and maybe a burial card. I certainly would try them. Be back tomorrow sometime.

From about 1903 on burial certificates are required in Vermont. I would check with the Town Clerk in Waterbury. Yes, there was damage to records, but all were not lost. They can probably find a burial certificate for Louis E. Ather. The certificate may be able to provide a death date and location.
