Making History

Stories in Stone


Among the more than 800 burials in Warren’s Old Cemetery is the story of the Wright family. Henry Wright was born in Connecticut around 1820 and served in the 13th Connecticut Volunteer Infantry in the Civil War, the Litchfield Regiment. He married twice. His first wife, Emely Jane Wright is buried beside him. She died 2 July 1845. She was 15 yrs. old and 3 mos. at the time of her death. Henry remarried 7 months later. Other than these monuments there is very little left to tell of these lives.
