Above stone is for my ancestor, Manasseh Cutler
Born: May 13, 1742, Killingly, Windham Co., Connecticut
Died: July 28, 1823, Hamilton, Essex Co., MA
I wrote about him in January 2010, my post was titled, "Manasseh Cutler is probably the most accomplished of all my ancestors." My last paragraph stated, "He died in his eight-second year having been a botanist, lawyer, parson, doctor, school teacher, merchant, chaplain in the Army and a legislator!"

There are two crosses of war veterans. Another one is opposite the above one, across the road. I requested the names of the soldiers, and if I get them, I will post here.
Rev. Cutler was the pastor of Hamilton Congregational Church for 52 years.
The beautiful yellow house is next to the church and is where he lived.
