Emeline C. Gallup (1821-1828)
Row #1, Grave #308-10-003, GPS 41.41676 N - 71.97183 W

Teenage Emeline C. Gallup is not buried with her parents in this cemetery.  (They are buried in Waterford, New London, CT.) 

It is a bit unusual for this to happen as they have no other children buried here. It could be that she was living in this area when she passed away. Her mother, Content Wheeler Gallup had seven children born in the years between Emeline's birth and her death.

Two questions. One what cemetery is this? Two, was there any other family in that area?

This is the private gated cemetery in Ledyard, CT called Gallup Burying Ground. There are Gallup people buried in many nearby burying grounds especially in Mystic, CT.
