Tombstone Tuesday: Sarah GALLUP

Row #3, Grave #308-10-037, GPS 41.41674 N - 71.97182 W
(Transcript from Hale Survey)
 Gallup, Sarah, daughter of Christopher & Patty, died Mar. 17, 1803, age 1 yr. 7 mos.
Not Quite Two or Aged 5?

Little Sarah GALLUP, daughter of Christopher and Patty Gallup was 1 year and 7 months old when she died OR was she older? This sandstone gravestone's lettering is a bit deceiving because the last part of the gravestone looks like a 5 or a 3 as the next part of the inscription implies. 

We don't know when this gravestone was put in place and it may mark the resting place of both little girls. Next up is the little girl named Sally
