Isaac D. CLIFT

Isaac D. CLIFT
Originally uploaded by midgefrazel
Isaac Denison CLIFT was the youngest son of Capt. Nathaniel Clift and his wife Eunice Denison. He was born 14 Oct 1822. He married Elizabeth J. Tift on 5 Oct 1853. Isaac died on 25 April 1892.

Isaac is buried next to his wife and in this Clift section of Elm Grove Cemetery in Mystic, New London, CT

Isaac must have been named for his grandfather, Isaac Denison, Sr. who I am researching. As Isaac Denison, Sr. died in 1817, it may have been the influence of his wife Eunice Williams Denison to name a grandson after her husband. I was glad to see another Isaac buried so close to the Denison plot.
