Harriet HOXIE was the daughter of John Holdredge HOXIE and Mary E. VanRyper. The Denison genealogy lists her names as Harriet Denison Hoxie (#2434-9, p. 458). She was born 23 July 1875 in Mystic and is listed with her parents in the 1880 5 years old.

Harriet married Frank GILFILLAN 26 October 1901 as listed on p.458 of the Denison genealogy and they lived in Stonington and Hartford. They returned to Stonington by the 1930 census.
Frank doesn't seem to be buried with his wife and daughter, but he is recorded as having died in 1953. As you can see by this gravestone, Harriet was a widow and lived 10 years after her husband dying on 23 June 1963 and was buried in the HOXIE plot.

Frank was from Vermont and lived in Rhode Island until he and Harriet married. He was a stockbroker. (1900 census) He may have been buried with his parents in Rhode Island.

Please note that GILFILLAN doesn't have an extra i in it on this gravestone.
