Blood Sweat and Tears

And so it came to pass that in 1871, Elizabeth Blood, the widow of Joseph, agreed to sell the quarry and surrounding lands

to the Cape Ann Granite Company for the sum of $2,500.00. Receiving a partial payment of $800.00.

Col. Jonas French brokered the deal, and he and Gen. Ben Butler toasted each other at their great fortunes.
