Additional information provided by George Husted, member 48693188:

Abigail SEYMOUR Husted was wife of Captain Thaddeus Husted, a soldier and officer of the American Revolution. He was in the Battle of Trenton, the Battle of Ridgefield (Tryon's Raid), and the skirmish at Compo Beach. He responded with his company to the Lexington Alarm and was sent to the defense of New York City in 1775. He continued to serve the entire war, rising in rank from a private soldier, to captain of the 2nd Troop, Third Regiment, CT Light Horse. His grave marker is lost, most likely in the same move that Abigail's grave marker was moved. He was originally buried at the couple's property at what is now 14 White Oak Shade Road, and it is likely that she was buried beside him, prior to the gravestones being removed and placed in their current location.
