Nathan Gallup, 3rd
Next to the gravestone of Eunice Gallup who died in 1789 is this gravestone of Nathan, son of Nathan Gallup, Jn. and his wife Lucy (Packer) Gallup. Little 7 year old Nathan is the only child attributed to Nathan Gallup, Jr. and his wife Lucy. 

He was born in 1779 and died 30th January 1788. His parents married 4 January 1778 and the father, Nathan Gallup, Jr. died in 1778 in September so this child was born after his father had passed away.
