Hibbard-Stoddard Cemetery

Headstone Inscriptions

Note: - I got this information from a book compiled by Irving F. Maynard and Harold F. Bartlett of the Town of Ledyard Cemetery Committee (dated July 1, 1964) that I found at the Gales Ferry Library. This page is exactly as it appears in the original document. This cemetery is located in the Stoddard Hill State Park (Stoddard Hill, foot of mountain), north of the Stoddard's Wharf Road/Rt. 12 intersection in Gales Ferry.
