Featured Gravestone – Achsah Clarke

DSC03859Section:  Baptist

Material:  White marble

Large, plain stone that has broken into three sections, possibly from weight being applied.  Inscription is very worn, but name can be read with effort.

The Common Council inventory notes that she was from Saybrook, Connecticut and that she died May 28, 1842 at the age of 54.  Her name appears several times in the local newspapers in 1834 on lists of individuals with letters awaiting them at the post office.  There is very little other available information on her.
