Visited: 4/23/2022

Log Excerpt: "Back out of the cemetery we went just a short way in distance but longer in time to Chapel Street. Here Ken hung out across the street in a no parking area while I hopped out for photos of a marker for Roger Sherman’s home up to his death in 1793."

Gravesite

 

Gravesite: New Haven Green, New Haven, CT

Visited: 5/5/2013

Log Excerpt: "New Haven Green NHL - A 16-acre privately-owned park and recreation area, it is a traditional town commons and completed in 1638 was originally known as "the marketplace" and in its early years it held a watch house, a prison and a school. [This was also the initial gravesite of Signer Roger Sherman, before reinterment in Grove Street Cemetery] On such a nice spring day there were plenty of people playing ball, walking dogs, bicycling and just enjoying the day and the big green space."

Gravesite

 

Gravesite: Grove Street Cemetery (reinterred), New Haven, CT

Visited: 4/23/2022

Log Excerpt: "Our first stop was in Grove St. Cemetery (NHL). Incorporated in 1797 to replace the crowded burial ground on the New Haven Green, it was the first private, nonprofit cemetery in the world, and one of the earliest to have a planned layout, with paved and named streets and avenues. We had both been here independently, although Ken only saw it from outside. This time our destination was the grave of Signer Roger Sherman. Since we had a GPS location, it didn’t take us long to drive then walk to the grave, which consisted of a flat top table-like main marker, and more modern (and readable) memorial."
