Wow your good at this lol

I got the photos of the gravestones so piecing it together this helps a lot

Jacob and Mary Gibbs around 1742. Interesting.

Very possible her Gibbs in rocky hill many moved back and forth Wethersfield and rocky hill in history

No other Gibbs in Wethersfield village cemetery in fact they use her married name griswold

Oh god she died on her birthday; however grave inscription recorded as 63rd year she died see Wethersfield burying ground map link on her profile. So maybe born in 1740?

I’m getting the impression Daniel Griswold was in military around revolution war time

Thanks for the star Andrew

Hello cousin.  Daniels parents are Griswold-1520, Josiah Griswold and Belden-417, Mabel Belden.  I'll let you do the honors and make the connections.  :-)

Thank you. I just added parents : )
If Daniel's mother is a Belden from Wethersfield, the family may have connections to Deerfield and Hadley, Mass.
