Together at Last

Headstones for Paul (1734-1818) and Abigail McKinstry (unk-1802) in Cherry Hill Cemetery at Main Street and Christian Hill Road, north of the White River and east of Bethel, Windsor County, Vermont. Paul McKinstry fought for Connecticut as a private in the Revolutionary War. These 200-year-old headstones must have been cleaned recently; they’re remarkably well preserved.
