 I've combined a few pictures.  Stephen Laskey sent me the first few and these were from several years ago.  The ones below were sent by Midge Frazel of her trip to Gallup Hill in May of 2004.

These were taken by Stephen Laskey of the Entrance and Memorial Sign to the Gallup Cemetery in Ledyard, CT.
This is a memorial stone to the Revolutionary War Veterans buried in the Gallup cemetery.  I assume that this is also Stephen pictured behind the stone.

These photos were taken by Jon Saunders at an earlier date.  Some of the stones are somewhat easier to read.  I believe that we can see the effects of weather on some of these old stones.  I have left the text that I had originally put in when this page was uploaded.  There are some duplicate stones that are shown above.  You can judge for yourself which copy you prefer.  It is truly wonderful that we have such a wonderful heritage and that there are kind and generous people like Jon Saunders and Midge Frazel to donate these photos.
