Next to the church is a very old cemetery. It is referred to as the Presbyterian Cemetery. It has grave stones from people born dating back to the 1770's. There is even a Revolutionary War solder, David Marvin, buried there. Neighbors, from time to time, mow and weed the cemetery, but it is still in sad shape. A few years back, some neighbors and I, went to document the gravestones there. Photos were taken, names were written down. There is a list of "occupants" for this cemetery that was written in 1930 and later put on the internet, but we discovered that several people were not listed.
The cemetery continues to degrade, the names continue to erode to the point of oblivion. In an effort to save history, I have put together a spread sheet of all the names on the gravestones with the photos. Sadly it is too late for some gravestones.
There is already a page on this website with photos of the gravestones. It is there that you will find a link to the cemetery spread sheet. I hope to expand on that with as much information as I can find about each person buried there.
David Marvin was born in 1764 in Sharon, Litchfield, CT to John J. Marvin and Katherine St. John. When he was 19, (1782) he served as a Private in the Revolutionary War with the Fitch's Independent Volunteer Company.
He married Deborah Baldwin in 1801. In 1815, they moved to Fish House where David was a blacksmith and a farmer. They had four children, including a son named Langdon Ithiel Marvin who later became a prominent doctor.
David died in 1841. His wife lived until 1849. They share a gravestone.
