    Notes 
    • Jeremiah Philpott, a native of Ireland, was an employee of Cashman Brothers, a stone contracting concern. On Tuesday afternoon, April 29, 23-year-old Jeremiah was killed while blasting rocks for Charles McDermott in Woods Hole.

      Philpott is buried in the Cashman family plot in Saint Patrick Cemetery, Rockland, MA. It is likely that a sense of responsibility and decency compelled the Cashman brothers to offer their family plot as a final resting place for Philpott. [2]
