Maude deLeigh Hodges wrote, "Watertown, Massachusetts, was founded in the year 1630 and was the first inland settlement in Massachusetts. It began as a Puritan settlement and became a hub for trade and commerce  . . . Waves of migration brought to Watertown Puritans escaping from English religious persecution; Irish fleeing starvation and want; and Italians, Armenians, Greeks, Jews and Canadians seeking new opportunities." (Hodges, Maude deLeigh, Reddy, Sigrid, & The Watertown Free Public Library (1980).  Crossroads on the Charles:  A History of Watertown, Massachusetts.  Canaan, NH:  Phoenix Publishing)

This presentation will name and celebrate that diversity, the men and women of Watertown, and Mount Auburn Cemetery, a Watertown landmark which holds their remains and the monuments dedicated to their memory.

Rosemarie Smurzynski is an ordained Unitarian Universalist minister.  She graduated from Harvard Divinity School in 1980 and has served her denomination for over 40 years.  Upon retirement from parish ministry in 2010, Rosemarie became a docent at Mount Auburn Cemetery.  The topics of her walks include notables buried in the cemetery, but also the cemetery's history, topography and structures.  Each year on the first Sunday in January, Rosemarie leads Mount Auburn's popular Cherubs & Angels walk.
