The left photo shows the broken headstone and a footstone fragment which displays only "65". The footstone fragment was found loose several rows back in June 2005. The footstone slate matches that of the Joshua Cheever headstone and the "65" is consistent with his death year 1765. The right photo shows the footstone fragment set in the ground directly behind the Cheever headstone.
