with such clues we have restored the stone from that spectre of a monument
which seemed ready to fall at the slightest touch, to its original character, and
now it stands perfect in every detail and as fitting a memorial of Mabel Wyllys
Talcott as could be desired. It seems almost unnecessary to state that there
has been absolutely no modernizing, such a thing would be looked upon as
desecration by the committee of the Ruth Wjdlys Chapter. The necessary
cleaning gives of course a fresh appearance, and it needs hardly an argument.

THE ANCIENT BURYING GROUND OF HARTFORD.

it seems to me, to prove that the inscriptions when effaced should be recut, for
a gravestone with no record has lost its value and is of no more service than a
lump of field granite. When a choice piece of antique colonial furniture is
brought forth to be given the place of honor in the household and a broken
foot is repaired that the revered article may stand firm and safe, and some
accumulations of dust scraped off to make this household god clean and
attractive, I have never heard the process stigmatized as that of "modernizing."
There are practical details of restoration which must be accomplished, and
when an old stone which stands at a ridiculously unsteady angle of 45 degrees
and has lost every word of its record is cleaned, straightened and the inscrip-
tion recut exactly like the original with no change in any respect from its colo-
nial characteristics, can any restoration be more true or free from the
criticism of "being modernized ?" In cases where the inscriptions have dis-
appeared, as has frequently been the
case, the exact originals have been
found in Dr. Hoadley's priceless list of
epitaphs copied by him in 1870. To his
foresight and to the patient work of
twenty-seven years ago, as well as to his
present courtesy, all who are interested
in this work of redemption in the ceme-
tery are greatly indebted, and I feel that
the value of this list can hardl)^ be over-
estimated. A one dollar subscription
has been started for one of the foTin-
ders of Hartford whose descendants
are legion, Ozias Goodwin,
the father of all of that
name in this part of the
country. It seems singu-
lar that with so many
Goodwins born in Hart-
ford, who lived, died here
and were buried in the old
cemetery, there should be
so few stones of that name
now existing — only ten.

I am told that the Goodwins were buried where the Waverly now stands, pos-
sibly also under the church or chapel or even the sidewalk. Contributions
may be sent to Mrs. W. N. Pelton, 792 Asylum avenue, or Mrs. John M. Hol-
combe, 79 Spring street. Thirty dollars have already been subscribed.

Descendants of the Rev. Timothy Woodbridge may send to Miss Mary K.
Talcott, 815 Asylum avenue. Samuel Stone's descendants may send to Mrs.
W. N. Pelton, 792 Asylum avenue, Hartford. The Rev. Samuel Stone left no
descendants in the male line, so there are no representatives of his name, but
there are numerous direct descendants from his daughters — one the wife of
Thomas Butler, has many representatives; his daughter Elizabeth married
first William Sedgwick, second John Roberts; Rebecca married Timothy Nash;
Mary married Joseph Fitch.

In case sums donated exceed the amount required for the stone in
question, the balance will be used on the improvement of the cemetery, and
this work is almost as important as the care of the stones. There are several
fine table stones not yet arranged for, and I give them as follows, hoping thus




to find ^persons interested in their preservation: Mrs. Eunice Wadsworth,
1736; Thomas Wadsworth, 1716; Lieut. Col. John Allyn, 1696; Mr. John Ellery,
no date; Daniel Lord, 1762; Elisha Lord, 1725; James Richards, 1680, coat-of-
arms carved on stone; John Ledyard, 1771; William Ellery, 1812; Dr. Ehakim
Fish, 1804 (the daughter of Dr. Eliakim Fish married John Morgan, one of the
founders of Christ Church and for whom Morgan street was named. Are
there any descendants?); Deacon Solomon Smith, 1786. The table monu-
ments of the pastors of the First (or Center) Church will be restored by their
descendants, except the one erected to the memory of the Rev. Edward Dorr.
As he left no children the First Church has put his tomb in perfect order.
McLean, 1741; William Stanley, 1786 (Mr. Stanley left all his property to the
South Church); Rev. Benjamin Boardman, Pastor South Church, 1802; Anna
Smith Strong, 1784, wife of Dr. Nathan Strong, dau. Dea. Solomon Smith, gr.
dau. George Talcott.

What seemed a very necessary improvement to this sacred God's Acre
was to convert the neighboring alley, called Gold street, whose tenements
overhung this sacred spot and who.se filth often desecrated it, into a broad, fine
avenue by removing the old rookeries and thus place the ancient cemetery
upon a spacious and beautiful thoroughfare, where, in a position public and
honorable in the center of the business portion of the citj', the throngs who
daily pass could read the historic names of those so long since buried there
and meditate upon the deeds that live in the nation's life and the veneration of
a grateful people. Eighty thousand dollars it would cost to buy these build-

ings, and to aid in this matter the Ruth Wyllys Chapter offered to raise by
public subscription the sum of ten thousand dollars to be used in any way deter-
mined by the Street Board. The Chapter issued a public appeal asking for
$15,000 — gio.ooo to devote to the city to aid in the widening of Gold street, the
balance for the improvement of the cemetery. In two weeks from the publica-
tion of the appeal §io,ooo had been pledged, and after that figure was reached
the contributions were for the cemetery work. Our "Fund" had reached the
sum of $13,000 in June. The old First Church had a fund of its own to raise, and
very soon the voluntary subscriptions amounted to ;Jio,ooo; so with the $13,000
contributed to the "Ruth Wyllys Chapter Fund" it will be seen that the citizens
of Hartford have contributed nearly $23,000 to redeem her ancient cemetery
from neglect and give it a proper setting. In compliance with the require-
ments of the law, the matter of widening Gold street has twice come before
the Common Council, and this body has unanimously directed the necessary
steps to be taken. The matter is still in the hands of the Street Board.

During the last summer much interest has been aroused all over the coun-
try. Sympathetic chords have been touched and responses have come from a
wide extent of territor}', even as far west as California. We seem entering
upon a period of renewed patriotism when the very atmosphere is teeming
with the spirit of loyalty and reverence for the " Founders " of this, "our coun-
try," and I am sure when the old cemetery is brought to public view adorn-
ments will be added and memorials of various kinds created. There mav

patriots through the long chain of lineal descent ?

In the center of the cemetery is a venerable monument erected sixty-two
years ago to the memory of the " Founders of Hartford," and bearing the fol-

These names represent the fountain-head of most of the pure streams
which have carried American national principles to the furthermost regions of
this country.

I append the list made in 1835 of gravestones standing in the old cemetery
now in the possession of Dr. Chas. J. Hoadly, State Librarian, and president
of the Connecticut Historical Society. The Hartford Coiirant says: "It should
be carefully read so that those who have relatives buried in the Ancient Hart-
ford Cemetery may know the fact. They can then find a reason for helping to
put that sacred spot in order."

Dr. Hoadly has also a list of burials called the "Sexton's List," from 1749
to 1806, including two thousand names. This has been copied and prepared
for print by Miss M. K. Talcott, registrar Ruth Wyllys Chapter, and will be
published in the four numbers of the CoNNECTict;T Quarterly beginning in

the issue of April next. All these lists give but a fraction of the number
buried in the old cemetery, which, be it remembered, was Hartford's only burial
place from 1640 to 1803, and where Dr. Walker estimates there were nearly six
thousand interments.
