First Born Son William Dies in 1839
Buried in Crary Cemetery #65 in North Stonington, CT is the first born son of Nathaniel Marsh CRARY and his second wife Rebecca STEWART. She was my 2nd great grand aunt.

William died at 14 on 2 Dec 1839 having been born 24 Apr 1825. [The Brown Genealogy, V1, p. 465, #4037] 

His parents were married 9 months and 6 days when he was born. 

The youngest child of Nathaniel Marsh CRARY and his first wife was only 4 years old when Nathaniel married Rebecca. The other children were 7, 10 and 12. Prudence died just a short time after giving birth to her last child.

It is hard to imagine being a farmer's wife with so many small children to care for. So many children died of consumption. Winters must have been hard.
