While on my road trip I stopped in to see the Pitcher Cemetery (#63) in North Stonington, CT. It is located across the street from 49 Wyassup Road in a field behind a wooden fence enclosure. Here are a few pictures of the cemetery:
It seems to be being maintained, at least the grass is being cut but the stones themselves are mostly leaning against trees and not where they were originally placed. The reason I visited the cemetery was to see the graves of Harriett Newell Pitcher Buddington and her daughters Lucy E Buddington and Martha H Buddington. Harriet was the first wife of Edward J Buddington who was the son of Lois A Wells (Sometimes referred to as Louise) and Oliver Russell Buddington Sr. Lois A Wells (My Great Great Aunt) was the daughter of Russell Wells and Lydia Rogers Crandall (My Great Great Great grandparents) One of my mysteries of the family is what happened to Lois and Oliver R Buddington????? I have no idea when the died or where they are buried. Russell and Lydia Wells are in Oak Grove Cemetery in Ashaway, RI. Edward J Buddington is buried in Arlington National Cemetery and Harriett and daughters are in the Pitcher Cemetery but where are Lois and Oliver? If you know, I’d sure like to hear from you.
Here are some pictures from the Pitcher Cemetery:

Here is Lucy E Buddington who died 14 Jul 1858
Here is Martha H. Buddington who died 4 Mar 1880
I took some more pictures of the other graves and posted them on www.findagrave.com you just have to search by cemetery and put in Pitcher – Conn – New London County and it will come up.
