Gone But Not Forgotten

BEAVER BOG CEMETERY NEW FAIRFIELD, CT. (names S through Z)

The Beaver Bog Cemetery which is located at the intersection of
Bigelow Road, Beaver Bog Road and Route 37 was originally part of
of the Methodist Church. The present church was built in 1835 and was called the
Methodist Episcopal Church. The building was built by Jesse and Isaac Scudder,
Archibald Campbell, Hezekiah Wildman and Amos Stevens.
Several of the early families buried at this cemetery belonged to the church.
The cemetery separated from the church in 1935 since most of the original
church members were then deceased. At this time it became the Beaver Bog Cemetery.
An association was formed in later years to cover the maintenance.
The oldest legible stone in the Beaver Bog Cemetery is that of
Zebulon Plat who died in 1809. This burial ground was recorded in 1915 and
again in 1934. After comparing those records with the actual tombstones left
in 1982 there are 24 stones missing, destroyed or totally illegible. In 1908
a monument was erected here to honor the Revolutionary War soldiers buried
at Beaver Bog.

Some of the names within the list have the following designations.
