Solomon Atkins
You suggested I delete or merge the two Solomon Atkins memorials in Ild Riverside Cemetery in Middleton, CT. My Solomon, Find A Grave 73298785 is not a duplicate as he was born 55 years before the other one. Solomon born 25 July 1678, died 5 October 1748 was married to Phebe Edwards (1689-1779)

The younger Solomon could be a son, but did he die on the same day as his father?

From the Barbour collection:
Connecticut Town Birth Records, pre-1870 (Barbour Collection) about Solomon Atkins Name: Solomon Atkins[Solomon Adkins] Gender: Male Birth Date: 25 Jul 1678 Birth Location: Middletown Parent Name: Josiah Parent Name: Elizabeth His gravestone in the Old Burying Places established in Middletown in 1650 (upon the west bank of the Ct. River) says: "In memory of Deacon Solomon Adkins, who died Oct. 1748, in his 71st year. Isaiah 3d ver. 10th. Say ye to the righteous that itshall be well with them. "died at age 71 according to tombstone, Deacon in his church Probate Records Vol XV page 281-2-3Adkins, Solomon, Middletown.

I give to my 2nd son, Solomon Adkins, the equal half of my land that lyes in the third division, on the west side of the Great River, that I bought from James Ward Sen. and Ephriam Wilcocks; and the equal half of my land in sd division that lyesby the West River, and of that land that I bought of Charles Hamlin, and of the remaining 8 acres that I bought of Deacon Joseph Tibbals of Durham, lying in the south tier of lots, and of my 2 bogg meadow lotts, each containing 1 1/2 acres, onelying at a place called Brown's Point and the other lying near Bacon's Landing so called; and the whole of eight acres of land I bought from Giles Hall, Esq. and the dwelling house and the barn when my sd son Solomon now dwells, to him his heirsand assigns forever.

I give to my four youngest daughters, Rebeckah, Phebe, Esther and Abigail, to each the sum of 100L old tenor, including about 40L or 50 L which will appear by my account which I have given to my daughter Rebeckah and shall be accounted as so muchof her 100L to be paid by my sd three sons in equal parts. And I do hereby authorize and fully impower my two eldest sons, Samuel & Solomon, to sell and give lawful conveyance of all my homelott and buildings thereon , and divide the produce thereof among themselves and all the rest of my children, toeach an equal share, including my daughter Hanna (not to debar my wife having gthe improvement of my dwelling house during her pleasure).

My Memorial is not a duplicate for Roger. The #30643006 is Milford Cemetery where he is buried and my memorial is the Founders Cemetery which is for the Founders listed on the Memorial Bridge in Milford. Many of the Founders are in Memorials in the Founders Cemetery and also in Milford Cemetery.

Mercy Dibble

Went back out to plot O-186 and there is no stone for Mercy Dibble. The book, "Burials in the Granby Center Cemetery" by Carol A. Laun, states that she is buried in the plot and it also states there is no stone.

Have a good day,

He is buried in Dorchester, MA. The memorial in Hamden, Ct. is another cenotaph.
