This is a section of the Denison plot at Elm Grove Cemetery in Mystic, CT. Buried in this section are Deacon Daniel Denison, Sr. and his wife Mary Stanton and their son Cap't Daniel Denison, Jr. and his wife Esther Wheeler. (Each of these four stones and the information about them are the next entries in this blog.)
The large monument you can see is a memorial to Cap't George Dension and his wife Lady Ann Borodell. Cap't George is buried in Hartford, CT but his wife Lady Ann is buried here at Elm Grove.
