Curacao Cemetery: Landhuis Groot Kwartier 07/07/16

This is a single grave, for Cortland Lewis Parker, born in New Jersey USA in June 1781 and died in Curacao in February 1826. There was also reportedly an inscription in memory of Pieter Washington van Steenberchg who died in March 1808 age 17 months ( I did not see this inscription). The landhuis is now the offices of Trustmoore, and the grave is near the road and driveway entrance, where three burials were moved sometime before 1964 when a road was built. Careless drivers have damaged the pillars supporting the chain around the grave. Photographed July 2016. Copyright (c) 2019 J.A. Maass.
