Tombstone Tuesday: Henry GALLUP, Jr.

Row #2, Grave #308-10-032, GPS 41.41676 N - 71.97184 W
(Transcript from Hale Survey)
Gallup, Henry, died Nov. 22, 1831, age 77
Henry GALLUP, Jr's gravestone does not indicate that he was a Junior, does it? The Italic script and the composition of the stone are a bad combination.

It reads: In/Memory of/ Henry Gallup,/who died/Nov. 22. 1831/Aged 77 years.

The Gallup (2009) Genealogy states that Henry, Jr. was born 17 Oct 1758 and died 22 Nov 1831, so he would be 73 when he died but it certainly does look like 77 to me.

"In 1779, he was a private at Fort Griswold under Capt. John Williams, Co. Nathan Gallup's regiment. " [p. 186]

Henry married Desire Stanton on 17 Nov 1793 by Christopher Avery. They had 3 children.
