Gallup Burying Ground

Gallup Burying Ground
Originally uploaded by midgefrazel
The Gallup Hill Burying Ground is located in Ledyard, CT and is a private cemetery on land which belongs to the Gallup Family Association. It is gated, locked and fairly hard to find even through the name of the street it is on is called Gallup Hill Road.

Most of the graves are neatly arranged in rows. A wide path from the gate to the main part of the cemetery and the massive stone wall that encompasses the entire resting place lends itself to the character of the Gallup ancestors.

Carmen Johnson's Web site holds many of the photographs of the individual stones. This cemetery has not been completely recorded and photographed.
