Tombstone Tuesday - William and Catherine (Lewis) Hutchinson in Norfolk County, Ontario

I've run out of my own photographs of gravestones in cemeteries that I have visited, but I keep finding photographs of ancestors' gravestones online, mainly at Find A Grave, which now has over 103 million memorials.

The memorials for William Hutchinson (ca 1745 - 1826) and Catherine (Lewis) Hutchinson (1759-1845) show their gravestones in Fairview Cemetery, Haldimand-Norfolk Regional Municipality, Norfolk County, Ontario.

The inscriptions read:

Wife of
Wm. Hutchinson
August 15, 1845
Aged 84 Years

March 20, 1826
AE 81 Yr

I have written quite a bit about William Hutchinson - see William Hutchi(n)son (1745-1826) Family History - Post 1 and Post 2.

I have hopes of visiting this gravesite at some time in the future.  We almost stopped there on our 2004 vacation but didn't because my cousin Cheryl in Hamilton was not available to visit with, and we were going on to Niagara Falls.  Now I know where their graves are, thanks to Find A Grave.
