forsythia in bloom

Lot and Drake’s Corner is located at the intersection of North Street and Taconic Road in Greenwich. The family cemetery here is the smallest of the three under our care. A fieldstone wall surrounds it and an iron gate marks the entrance. All of the gravestones are carved from white marble and face south. The ground is covered with a carpet of myrtle plants that bloom every spring.

The following are interred here: Hannah Mead, died August 1, 1880, aged 80 years and 2 months; Mary Mead, wife of Jonah Mead, died February 28, 1837, aged 74 years, 8 months, and 8 days; Mary Mead, wife of Jonah Mead, died June 11, 1791, aged 30 years and 2 months; Jonah Mead, died February 21, 1837, aged 78 years, 2 months, and 18 days; Jonah and Stephen Mead, children of Jonah Mead; Drake Mead, son of Jonah Mead, died October 14, 1792, aged 8 years and 2 months; Hannah, daughter of Jonah Mead; Lot Mead, died June 20, 1866, aged 85 years, 7 months, and 10 days;
