  • Notes 
    • Here lies the body of Dn Josiah Dewey. He was born in Windsor 1640.........Slept in Jesus Sept7, 1732 In ye 92 year of his Age. Connecticut cemetery inscription. NEHGS 1920 Vol74 P57

      transcriptions of Westfield Vital Records show wife of this Josiah as Experience Dewey--but that appears to be a mistake, as children born later are listed to Hepzibah. Also, Ebenezer listed as son of Josiah and Experience in Westfield Vital Records shows as son of Josiah and Hepzibah on his gravestone. Also Hepzibahs gravestone in Lebanon's Old Cemtery is inscribed as husband of Josiah.
