Sadly, both the gravestones of  Henry GALLUP and his wife, Hannah MASON are made of sandstone (also known as brownstone) and are close to being completely unreadable. The weeping willow motif is gone and lichen are eroding the bottom of the stone.

Henry's reads: "In memory of/ Mr. Henry Gallup/who died/ Novr 11th 1811, /aged 86 years/" In the present Gallup (2009) genealogy, Henry and his family are listed on page 96 #339. He is listed with his parents on p. 47. Henry and Hannah were married by Rev. Ebenezer Rossiter.

However, the oldest Gallup (1893) gives us this expanded version of the family on page 46.

Mason's Island is off the coast of Mystic, CT

Midge, it is good that you have photographed and documented the stone since it will not last indefinitely. You are helping to preserve the information.
