These records have been contributed by Fairfield County, CT researcher Barbara Kaye. The data has been collected from several sources, including the Hale Cemetery Collection (see history, below).
We need you! If you live near a cemetery in Fairfield County, CT and wish to contribute data or add additional information to an existing cemetery collection, please email Barbara Kaye. I will see to it that your information is added. If you are interested in volunteering to photograph other cemeteries, please let me know.
The Charles R. Hale Collection of Headstone
Inscriptions resides at the Connecticut State Library. Charles Hale was
a member of the Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War.In 1916, he
became involved in locating and decorating the graves of Revolutionary
and Civil War veterans in his home town of Rocky Hill. In order to make
it easier to find these graves, he decided to record each veteran's
name, date of death and military service. He was persuaded by State
Librarian George S. Godard to search also for veterans of other wars.
I have also attempted to identify these people, using census and other vital records. Anything added within brackets like these [ ] indicates a suggestion as to the identity of the person. If a wife's name does not include a separate surname, it is not known at this time. Many couples in early Stamford were second or third cousins with the same surname. There are many surnames that have several alternate spellings. (See spellings for a list of common surnames and their alternate spellings.) Some people appear in more than one listing because some graves were moved to newer cemeteries, new stones were carved, and the old stones were left behind. Although much of the data on the various families in early Stamford is accurate, there will always be errors, many of which are found in published genealogies. It is recommended that you write to the Town Clerk's office for death or birth certificates for your ancestors. If you have documentation that supplies any missing information or corrects an error, please email Barbara Kaye.
