BURIAL with his wife and parents in Genthner Cemetery West Waldoboro, Lincoln County, Maine, He may have been originally buried in the French cemetery, then later here, as there is a second burial record which gives his DOD as 23 March 1900.  A man with the surname of French was buried a second time in the Genthner Cemetery, so this is a possibility.
