    [Includes headstone photo. Headstone is broken and very difficult to read. Inscription: REBECCA, WIFE OF ISAIAH SUTTON,
    DIED, AUG 1, 1872, [could be in error]
    AGED 58 YS, 2 MS, 12 DS [could be in error] ]
    [cos1776 20131013 Note: Stone is VERY difficult to decipher. I think it says "Aged 58 Ys, 2 Ms, 12 Ds, but the contributor thinks it says "Aged 58y 2m 2d". In either case, the birthdate currently on the page (3 Aug 1814) is in error with either of these readings. Also, this page gives her maiden name as Stewart but no source is indicated.]
