Hi Everyone,

If you have an ancestor who is buried at the Avery-Morgan cemetery in Groton,
CT you might want
to ask someone to take a picture of that persons gravestone. I was there
yesterday and approx
183 gravestones including footstones have been bleached. For those of you who
don't have any idea
what bleach does to marble it changes the texture of the stone and it becomes
more vulnerable to the
elements etc. A few of the infant stones are already detoriating. I did take
quite a few digital
photographs and have the Hale collection listing from that cemetery. To learn
about gravestone preservation
