Polly SLACK 1783-1861

Our Mother
Originally uploaded by midgefrazel.

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

May 2, 1861
aged 78 years

Could this be the gravestone of Polly SLACK [dau. of Amos and Molley] born 1783 and who was married to Avery Denison NOYES on 13 Feb 1799 [Stonington VR]?

Polly was the wife of Avery NOYES and mother of twelve children.

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.
