RE: Banks in Hull Cemetery
Charles Hale headed a WPA Projectd that went around Connecticut and listed the gravestones in all of the cemeteries in Connecticut in 1934. Many of them had long been "lost." Each town library has copies for their cemeteries. Or, you can look a person you are looking for on Ancestry and click on the Hale entry. I do this and then print the directory for that cemetery. It can be confusing because generally more than one person did the listing and the rows are not in order, but once you locate the proper row, the entries within the row are in order. However sometimes they are listing right to left and sometimes left to right. After a while you get the hang of it. This is helpful in identifying unreadable stones, since you might be able to read one or two things, like the date of death or part of the name. It also lets you figure about a broken or missing stone by noting its order in the row.

RE: Banks in Hull Cemetery
I took the pictures that were requested: Jesse Banks d 1826, Mabel Banks d 1822, Hyatt Banks d 1836 and Sarah Banks d 1860. You can view them on their memorials. They are located in the sixth row on the right, the 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th stone in. From the photographs you have taken, I am assuming you live in New York. Are you familiar with Charles Hale's lists of Connecticut Headstone Inscriptions? They are very helpful in locating gravestones.
