Invoice dated August 29, 1904 from Charles L. Worthley (1852-1932), manufacturer and dealer in marble and granite monuments, headstone, tablets and cemetery work, to install granite curbing on W. H. Heselton's corner.
Assuming W. H. Heselton was William H. Heselton (1851-1925), it was presumably William himself who contracted for the curbing for the Heselton lot in Southside Cemetery in Skowhegan, Maine.
William's FindaGrave memorial shows a photograph of his grave and a photograph of the entire Heselton lot, with granite curbing. See a list of people with the surname Heselton buried in the Southside Cemetery, including William, his wife Henrietta M. (Gage) Heselton, and his parents William G. Heselton and Elizabeth (Baker) Heselton. There were likely other Heselton family members, with surnames other than Heselton, in the cemetery, if not in the lot itself.
At the time of the installation in 1904, William's parents and wife were also still living; they all presumably took pleasure in the result.
If you have information to share on Charles L. Worthley or William H. Heselton, please leave a comment or contact me directly.
