Ezekiel Story
The birth date for Ezekiel must be incorrect, if the headstone reads that he died Aug 20 1752 at the age of 52 years, his birth date would have to be 1699 assuming the month and day are correct. or 1700 if the month or date are unknown. Kindly, readjust the memorial to more accurately reflect Ezekiel's birth year.

Birth: Sep. 16, 1718
New London County
Connecticut, USA
Death: Aug. 20, 1752
New London County
Connecticut, USA

"In memory of Mr. Ezekiel Story who died A'gust 20th 1752 in the 52d year of his age"

Walter A Shippee
Regarding Walter A Shippee, Robbins cemetery, Voluntown you need to add his death date which is on the gravestone NOT according to Hale records.
Death date clearly marked on the gravestone Feb 5 1936.

Ruth Scott Paster (Cem#2)
If you would, please, change Ruth's name to just Ruth Scott. The stone has been recarved with the name Paster removed. (Long story there, I gather). Anyway, I will replace the photo with an updated one as soon as I can.
