This past Sunday, September 28, I attended the 49th Annual Massing of the Colors of the Hereditary and Patriotic Societies of Connecticut at the First Church of Christ in Wethersfield. As a member of the Daughters of the American Revolution and the National Society Colonial Dames XVII Century, both represented at this ceremony, it was my pleasure to attend.
Wethersfield could not have been more
beautiful on a warm afternoon in late September.
Before the ceremony I walked around the town and visited the cemetery and the Broad Street green. I had not realized that there was a memorial plaque to my 12th great-grandmother, Alice (Tiler) Sherwood in the cemetery.
It is located in the cemetery directly behind the church near the building.

On Broad Street Green I found the memorial monument
for my 12th great-grandfather, Nathaniel Foote, a settler of
Wethersfield in 1634. The granite monument is on the site
of the original home lot. It reads…
Born in England 1593
Died in Wethersfield 1644
Erected By The
Foote Family Association
On the Original Home Lot
