Tombstone Tuesday - Henry White and family

The other ancestral family found buried in Bartlett Cemetery #1 in East Killingly, Windham County, connecticut is that of Henry A. White. The stone is shown below:

The transcription of the stone is:

George A. Winslow
Henry A. White
Almira E. Taft
wife of George A. Winslow
also wife of
Henry A. White
Effie C. White

It looks to me like Almira (Taft) (Winslow) White buried herself with her two husbands and one of her children. George Winslow died in the civil War. He and Almira had a son, George M. Winslow (1862-1928). Almira E. Taft was the daughter of Warren Taft (1817-1899) and Almira O. Oatley (1817-1903). Almira Oatley was the sister of Henry A. White's first wife, Amy Oatley (1826-ca 1868). So Henry married his first wife's Aunt Almira.

I was unable to find the grave of Henry White's first wife, Amy (Oatley) White. I assume that she is buried in this same cemetery but there appears to be no record in the Bartlett Cemetery #1 listing from the Hale Collection.
