Michael Kennedy Buried in Fireman’s Lot at Forest Hills Cemetery
The remains of Firefighter Michael Kennedy rest near those of 15 other Boston firefighters who died in the line of duty and are buried in the Fireman's Lot at Forest Hills Cemetery. Kennedy perished in last week's nine-alarm blaze at a Back Bay brownstone. It has been a week of mourning in Boston as thousands of firefighters from across the country came to honor Kennedy and Lt. Ed Walsh. While Walsh's family picked a burial plot in his native Watertown, Kennedy's family chose the Fireman's Lot. The city of Boston bought the lot in December 1857.
