Beauty In Weathered Gravestones July 29, 2017

Zachariah Walker  Gravestone for Zechariah Walker, South Cemetery, Woodbury, Lichfield County, Connecticut

Zechariah Walker was my 8th Great Grandfather.  He was born in Boston in 1637, died in 1699, in Woodbury Connecticut at age 63.

His parents were born in England and married in Boston in 1635.  His mother came to America in 1630.  She lived first in Salem.  I haven’t been able to determine when his father immigrated to America.

I like the way this gravestone has weathered – beautiful.
