Rebeckah Stillman born about 1687/1688 died 1719 at the age of 25. See F.A.G. Link has a different year of death. Her parents are George Stillman and Rebecca (Smith) Stillman. The gravestones of both Rebeckah and sister Martha are directly next to each other and next to them is the table stone gravestone of George Stillman and wife Rebecca Smith Stillman. Need help adding sources and clarifying exact dates of birth and death. Was she married or have children from what we have she never married. I have added a photo of her gravestone to help in her genealogy.

My relation is through her fathers first wife Jane (Pickering) Stillman (1659 - 1685)

Thank you
