Regarding the tombstone, see this link about the Hale Collection of CT
Cemetery Inscriptions. They are available at the CT State Library in
Hartford but also on microfilm through the LDS.
>Perhaps someone out there could help me understand something. In 1777 one o fmy Woodbury ancestors died, leaving a widow and young children. One of his sons, not the eldest son but my direct ancestor, later was legally appointed a guardian. Can anyone help me understand what conditions would cause a guardian to be appointed and what a guardian would then do?
>On another, related topic, I'd?very much like?to know what is on my ancestor's 1777 tombstone at the cemetery in the Congregational Church there [I'm assuming it would be the First Congregational Church]. If there's an angel out there willing to go looking for me, I can provide full name, birth and death dates. Thanks so much for any help.
