Founder of Provincetown Artist Community

At what cemetery is he buried?
I would like to visit his grave and honor his contributions to American art.

Default Charles Hawthorne

According to his New York Times obituary (available at: C.W. HAWTHORNE, NOTED ARTIST, DIES; Best Known for Portrayal of Folk o... - Free Preview - The New York Times), Charles Webster Hawthorne was buried in Provincetown. There is a large cemetery, St. Peter's, in Provincetown, but I don't know if Hawthorne is there. A year or so ago I contacted the art school operated in his old studio on Miller Hill Road to ask where he was buried. There was no reply. The school is now up for sale. Hawthorne may have been buried on his Miller Hill Road property, rather than in any of the town's cemeteries. Or, he may have been cremated and scattered without a marker.

I may just write to the city's government to find out.

Default Thank you

Dear Bob,

Thank you very much. The Hawthorne's held several parts of Europe close at heart, held ownership of homes in Provincetown and in Manhattan, and he died in Maryland - so I had no clue where to begin my search.

Your input is much appreciated
