More about Eliza Augur
was a member of a large New Haven family. The book
Families of Ancient New Haven,
by Donald Lines Jacobus, has an entry for Eliza Augur, and records her
marriage to Daniel Stark.
By working backward from her entry, I found fifty-seven of
her ancestors mentioned among the various families in this book.
Perhaps the most prominent of her ancestors was
one of the original New Haven colonists, and Deputy Governor of
New Haven Colony. Another ancestor,
Joseph Dorman, was killed by the
British on 5 July 1779.
The 1883 probate packet for Eliza (Augur) Tuttle contained her original
written in 1881.
The grave of Eliza Augur is in the
Grove Street Cemetery
in New Haven, CT.
Her gravestone is a prominent one located on the left-hand side of
"Spruce Avenue," if you start at the south-west corner of the cemetery
and walk, north for about 50 yards on Spruce Avenue.
It eads: "Eliza, wife of Isaac Tuttle.
Died July 5, 1883, AE 87 yrs 8 mos. At rest."
Also buried next to her are her father
Isaac Augur, mother
brothers Joel and
and sister Esther (Hester).
These stones are harder to read, but the following is what I could get
- "In memory of Isaac Augur who died Dec 11, 18-- aged 75.
Also his son Elihu who died in New London Jan 9, 1811
- "In memory of Esther wife of Isaac Augur who died May 17 1836
- "In memory of Miss Esther Augur who died Dec 13 1836 aged
46 years. `In the midst of life --illegible-- death."
