Sarah GIDDINGS, was the first wife of Col. Nathan GALLUP. After she died on 18 September 1778 her husband married again to a woman identified as Mary. Mary is only mentioned on her baby son's gravestone and in Col. Nathan GALLUP's will. None of the Gallup genealogies mention her. 

Sarah was born 7 Mar 1728/29 in Norwich, New London, Connecticut. She married Nathan GALLUP 25 May 1749 in Groton, New London, Connecticut. The record reads that her name was GIDEON. [Vol. 1 page 170 Barbour Index]

Sarah and Nathan had nine children and all lived to adulthood. A few of them are also buried here in this cemetery.
