The following correction was sent in by site visitor Glen Wilson, 4th Great Grandson of Ezra and Lucy (Wilson) Willson:

Lucy Wilson died on 6 December 1841 at age 91 years, 5 months, and 15 days.

When we visited the gravesite in June 1994, the inscription was not easily read at the time and a mis-calculation could be made. However, Ezra and Lucy are in my direct genealogical line and I have done extensive research; their birth, marriage and death records are all easily sourced. It is of interest that Ezra and Lucy's children began spelling their name with one "L". All subsequent generations spell their last name "Wilson", not "Willson", as it should probably be listed.

Lucy Wilson and Ezra Willson were married 30 Aug 1774, in Spencer, Worcester Co., MA. She was born 7 Nov. 1750, in Leicester, Worcester Co., MA, and died in Northville, Fulton Co., NY.

I recall that their son, Isaac, was buried alongside his parents.
