Stephen N. Fuller, died 1825 at age 3, Dunbarton, New Hampshire

It's Tombstone Tuesday!  This tombstone was photographed at the Center Cemetery in Dunbarton, New Hampshire.

Stephen N. son of
Jared & Thankfull
Fuller, died Dec. 17
1825, aged 3 years
11 months & 7
Rest sweet babe in gentle slumber,
'Till the resurrection morn! 
Then arise & join the number
Then its triumphs shall adorn.

On page 240 of The History of Dunbarton, by Caleb Stark, 1860, "Jared Fuller, lately deceased, was an ingenious blacksmith, as well as an esteemed townsman.  He resided on the place formerly owned by Samuel Perkins."

Jared Fuller, son of Stephen Fuller and Hannah Felch, was born 28 December 1783 and died 19 May 1854 in Dunbarton.  He married Thankful Story on 21 November 1811 in Dunbarton. She was the daughter of Daniel Story and Ruth Burnham.  Jared Fuller was NOT the descendant of the Mayflower passenger Fuller family, born 1618 in Redenhall, Norfolkshire, England, who died 28 September 1690 in Dedham, Massachusetts.

Thankful Story, baby Stephen's mother, is my distant cousin through the Story, Burnham, and Varney families of Essex County, Massachusetts.
