Bridget PALMER (Thomas, Nehemiah Jr., Nehemiah Sr., Walter II) was the daughter of Thomas PALMER and his wife Priscilla CHESEBROUGH. She was born 05 April 1743 in Stonington, CT and died 22 August 1823 in Groton, CT.

Bridget was one of my 5th great grandmothers, wife of Benadam GALLUP, III. They married 30 Jan 1766 in Stonington. They were the parents of 7 children. Their daughter, Bridget GALLUP married Deacon Sands FISH

This stone, the "newest" in the row in which my Gallups rest, is very hard to read and has been repaired some time in the past. She is buried next to her husband in the row with his family.

It probably reads:

In memory of/ Bridget/ wife of Benadam Gallup/ who died August 22nd, 1843/ aged 80 years.

This grave is located in the Gallup Burying Ground in Ledyard, CT.
