Gallup Burying Ground

Gallup Burying Ground

I have blogged about the Gallup Burying Ground in Ledyard, New London, CT several times before. This photo, taken last August 15, (2009) is of the row with my ancestors gravestones but it is a good shot of how this cemetery is laid out, mostly in clearly defined rows.

This is a private, gated locked cemetery completely surrounded by a lovely Connecticut stone wall. The gate on Gallup Hill Road is the main entrance with a side gate that leads through the woods to the Gallup house. This is private land and this is not a public cemetery. It is owned and maintained by the Gallup Family Association.

The records for the cemetery often list it as being in Groton because once, this place was Groton until 1836. {Source: Ledyard Town Web page]
