Tombstone Tuesday: Elias and Fanny's Son

Row #2, Grave #308-10-022, GPS 41.41695 N - 71.97193 W
(Transcript from Hale Survey)
 Gallup, infant son of Elias & Fanny, died Mar. 4, 1830
(Note the Hale has the date of death as 1830 and the stone has 1831)
With two baby gravestones next to each other, it would have been hard to be sure which son belonged with each family. Brian Zoldak's excellent photographs of these tiny gravestones are so clear there is no doubt in my mind as to who their parents were.

The Gallup (2009) genealogy lists this infant son's possible birth year as about 1829 probably based on the marriage of his parents in 1828. As Brian notes (in the caption above) the Hale Cemetery record lists the death date of 1830 perhaps because that part of the stone was underground at that time?

With this great photograph it is so clear that he was the son of Elias Gallup and his wife Fanny and that he died on 4 March 1831. 

This baby boy is next to his father's gravestone. His mother was Fanny DEAN and she is not buried in this cemetery as she outlived her husband. She is buried in Evergreen Cemetery in Stonington, Connecticut.
