    Notes 
    • From Devere Allen: "They are both buried in the same lot as my father and mother, in the Wheeler Cemetery in North Stonington village, not far from the Wheeler School. I remember my grandmother, who lived with us, for a short time before she went to live with my Aunt Gertrude Watrous in 1910, as a very keen-minded person, combining amiability with a sort of executive force and directness. In the old New England fashion, she was proud of the quilts she made of old pieces of cloth, which she skillfully built into intricate designs. If she was ever troubled, at her advanced age, by the liveliness of an energetic grandson, she did not display impatience, but was sympathetic. I well remember her sense of humor, one of her strongest characteristics. She used to hunt for her spectacles at times, and when she found them pushed up on her forehead, she would exclaim, "If it'd been a b'ar 'twoud a bit me!" Her speech was typical of the region, as was that of my grandfather AMOS, and reflected the history of a rural section to which, naturally, in all its rmifications, I became strongly attached.

      "As the "Brown Genealogy" puts it, "both are members of the old Second Baptist Church organized by Elder Simeon Brown in 1765; AMOS for many years was leader of the church music, as early as 1850.""
