An ornate stone
from the 19th Century

An unusually elaborate stone for the mid-19th Century stands over the grave of Mary Eliza, wife of the Rev. D. H. Short, who died in 1853. Mr. Short was minister of St. Stephen's Episcopal Church for four months, resigned, and started a school in town, which two future Connecticut governors, George and Phineas Lounsbury, attended. The symbol on the stone is an Episcopal cross.
