He is buried in Great Plain Cemetery #57 in North Stonington, CT on the top of the hill beside his wife.
His gravestone is sandstone and is flaking off but the footstone remains above ground.
"In memory of/ Mr. Nathan Steward/who died/Nov. 1, 1813/aged 69 years."
Nathan STEWARD [my 4th great grandfather] and his wife Barbary PALMER are the first gravestones I have been able to find in my STEWART/STEWARD line.
As Nathan and Barbary had ten children, I am hoping to meet other descendants researching them. [to date I know of only one person.] They are buried in the Great Plain Cemetery in North Stonington in the near center of the graveyard on a hill. Their gravestones are sandstone and they are flaking off BUT they both have intact footstones.
The links here will take you to my gravestone blog where I am posting gravestone photos and information.
Nathan3 STEWARD/STEWART (William2, William1) was born 22 June 1745 and died 1 Nov 1813 in Stonington, New London, CT. He married Barbary PALMER on 1 May 1768.
"He was a man of great resolution and his wife was a noble woman. He lived to see nearly all his children married." [Wheeler p. 605-606]
