These were taken in White-Hall Cemetery in Mystic, CT.
Some were taken a few years ago and the others were taken quite recently. 

Here are Midge's directions to the cemetery. "Whitehall Burying Ground, From Rt. 95, take Exit 90 (Mystic Seaport) Be on Rt. 27 (Whitehall Ave). Look for Mystic Carousel and Fun Center and go down Hendel Dr. to back of parking lot for the Amusement Center. Cemetery is behind a Lumberyard. It is gated but not locked.

 

These are of the Gateway to the cemetery, and of the cemetery - when you go through the gate and turn left - looking straight ahead - and the Gallup plot is at the very far end - more or less under the trees. Photos and explanations by Sharon J Cadieux.

Here are two photos of "the Gallup Plot" - you can see the large sarcophagus-like memorial stone in the one, and to give perspective, the stone in the lower left corner of that photo, which has a white smear of bird dropping on it, is in the second photo - the brown stone with two large spots where the surface has flaked off - white bird dropping at top.  Just about in the centre of the second photo you can see Esther (Prentice) Gallup's stone (there's a small brown just to the right and in front of it), and Benadam's is just to the left of Esther's. Photos and explanations by Sharon J Cadieux.

Hannah Lake is buried at Whitehall Cemetery.  She was b. abt Abt. July 03, 1621 in Essex, England to Mary/Margaret Reade and John Lake. Her aunt was married to John Winthrop.  Hannah d. Aft. February 28, 1680, probably in Stonington, CT.  She married John Gallup bet 1642-1643 probably in Boston, MA.  He was b. in 1615 in Dorset, England and d. December 19, 1675 at Narragansett Fort, South Kingston, RI.  He is buried at a mass grave at Narragansett Fort.  He led his men in storming the fort and was one of six captains who died in the attempt. John Gallup immigrated to America with his mother, Christobel Bruschett on Sept. 4, 1633 on the GRIFFIN.  My understanding is that this memorial was laid several years ago by some of the descendants of John Gallup and Hannah Lake.
