|This marker was found as a pile of broken pieces (stone & brick) and pieced back together in July 2013. The day we visited the cemetary, the man hired to repair it was there working on it. It no longer has the brick base, it is now stucture more like a table with four legs and an open space beneath. He said that below this marker (underground) was the Winslow family tomb, which held many, many people. |
