Avery Denison NOYES

Our Father

Avery Denison NOYES 1771-1823

This rounded top gravestone marked with the words "Our Father "reads on this side:

April 11, 1823
aged 51 years

Could this be the gravestone of Avery Denison NOYES son of Joseph NOYES and Prudence DENISON born 13 Feb 1771?
Avery was the husband of Polly SLACK and father of twelve children. After spending hours searching records, it seems that Avery and Polly have no recorded death dates.

This stone is situated near the graves of Fanny NOYES Moxley, Prudence W. NOYES, Avery D. NOYES, and William S. NOYES and is the correctly calculated year from the recorded year of birth.
