Tombstone Tuesday: the Nettleton family plot, Durham Center Cemetery, Durham, CT
Two Nettleton couples are buried together in Durham Cemetery. Henry and Cornelia (Camp) Nettleton and Henry and Rosetta (Miller) Nettleton. Presumably, Henry and Cornelia were the parents of Henry. Henry and Cornelia were farmers. According to the 1850 census, they lived in Durham and had four children: Rosetta was 10, Frances was 6, Henry was 3, and Sabina was 1. From the indications of the census, Henry and Rosetta were also a farming couple. They were apparently childless, lived in Durham most of their lives, and eventually, retired to Middletown.
