    Both my father and mother are buried here. The "Vineyard" was visit summers from 1944 until 1979 when my mother sold the cottage in what was referred to as 'The Highlands" in East Chop.

    These men were members of the Hartford Choral Club and they formed an octet which sang and partied together for many years in the 1950s and often went to the Vineyard together. The "Passport Photographer" was one of their many entertaining songs.
