His gravestone has been repaired and reset as it has sunk into the ground as you can see by the discoloration at the bottom of the stone. He is buried next to his wife Martha STANTON Prentice, widow of Thomas Prentice.

Christoper and Martha had seven children (Gallup (2009) genealogy. Three children died young and one daughter remained unmarried. After Martha died in 1818, the unmarried daughter, also named Martha, must be the person living in the household with her father in the 1840 census. (1840 census: male 70-79 and female 40-49) 

Two daughters and a son were already married with families of their own by the time the 1840 census was enumerated.She died in May 1842 leaving her father living alone until he died in 1849 at the age of 85.
