Camden, NJ. March 2012 - DinnerWithWalt
Camden, NJ.  March 2012. Harleigh Cemetery. Horace Traubel's headstone. This stone was acquired by his intimate friends, Frank & Mildred Bain. Traubel died at Bon Echo in Ontario. Bon Echo property owner, Flora MacDonald offered to Traubel's wife, Anne Montgomerie, that he might be buried at Bon Echo, but Anne insisted that he be brought home to Camden, NJ. I have read that the Traubel family requested to Whitman's last surviving niece, Jessie Whitman, that Traubel be buried in Whitman's tomb, however Jessie would have no part of it! (She was upset that Horace Traubel and the two other literary executor's "discussed taking possession of Whitman's books and papers as he lay dying" - this has since been recanted as untrue).
