SOUTH MIDDLEBORO CEMETERY, MIDDLEBORO, MA. 11JUN 2012 PT3

I knew that my 5x great grandfather Caleb Benson had been buried here but
while I found headstones for many Benson family cousins, I didn't find
Caleb's on this trip:


My 3rd cousin 4x removed Ansel Benson.

The rusted gate to the burial plot of Consider Benson & family.



First cousin 6x removed Lieut. Consider Benson





Second cousin 5x removed Asa Benson & wife Druzilla.
About a week later I made a return visit. It appears Caleb's original
stone had been destroyed by weather or vandalism and after searching
around a bit I found a newer marker for him :
 




This marker was the first hint I had that Caleb was a clergyman.
