You are welcome. I add info to photo caption when markers are not found. Recorded in B1 L14 with her brother William. No marker found for her.

RE: Thank you
Ellen,

You're very welcome. As I'm sure you know there are many other Gary family members at Wheaton Cemetery. I found, without talking to the office, at least four large, multiple grave plots at the cemetery. Most of them seem to have pictures on Find A Grave already but if there are others you need let me know.

Thanks,
Denise

Josiah Gary (1708-1780)
Hmm... I see there is an interesting quandary. Josiah seems to be buried in two cemeteries. South in Pomfret # 93135917 and Grove St. in Putnam # 76888228.

The Hale Collection of Cemetery Inscriptions has the listing in Grove St. It reads: Gary, Josiah, born 1708, died 1780, Revolutionary. This reading is only dates and relationships, it never has epitaphs etc. It was done in the 1930's.

Josiah Gary is not listed in the Sabin Cemetery in the Hale Collection (implying that by 1930, the stone had become illegible.) So you won't be able to read the epitaph.

I got the Sabin/South reading from a reading done in 1862 "Inscriptions in The Wappaquians Burial Ground, Pomfret. Conn., 1723-1861. NEHGR Vol 73 pgs 105-124". It unfortunately does not list epitaphs either.

Josiah is undoubtedly buried in Pomfret. I can't think of a single reason why they would have buried him in Putnam. So my guess is someone put up a stone in his memory there (a cenotaph). I'm not even sure if Grove street was operating in 1780. I haven't seen any stones that look like they date back that far. Eventually I will finish photographing the cemetery and will be able to see the stone, if someone else doesn't find it for you before then.

Happy Hunting, ASB
