BURIAL GROUND, MORGANVILLE, TOWN OF STAFFORD
abandoned burial ground is about 200 feet northeast of the Morganville
Cemetery. No veterans were buried there according to the 1926 survey
made by the Sons of the American Revolution. It is now part of a pasture
and only one stone remains with lettering on it. This stone is broken
and the remaining pieces read:
drowned July 12, 1818, @ 26y.
and see as you pass by
you are now so once was I
I am now soon you must be
yourself to follow me."
remainder of the stone is missing and no name can be found.
