Harris Griswold (1800 - 1852) Buried at Wethersfield Village Cemetery Need Children List

+1 vote

Harris Griswold was born about 1800. He married a Delia R (Blinn) Griswold (date unknown?). They have a row of Griswold’s buried here and I need the children’s list to put it together. Harris Griswold died July 21, 1852. See F.A.G. Link. Need help with this Griswold Family Genealogy and connecting him to the wiki family. Priority is the children’s list and date of marriage also to confirm wife’s maiden name as “Blinn” which is probably accurate as many Blinn in this cemetery. See Full text of "The Griswold family, England-America : Edward of Windsor, Connecticut, Matthew of Lyme, Connecticut, Michael of Wethersfield, Connecticut" seems to show marriage date of September 20, 1826. Delia R. Blinn of Berlin who died March 24, 1863

I have taken photos of their graves to help in their genealogy research

Plot is section B Row 2 Letter H


Wife is listed as same B-2-H

Note: See the photo I took of the broken stone next to Harris Griswold’s gravestone it’s broken at ground level. I’m fairly confident it’s a grave marker for their child or another Griswold family member

Thank you
