Conn. gravestone finds resting place in Missouri
CHESHIRE, Conn. (AP) -- A 200-year-old gravestone that was used as a stepping stone at a Bantam cottage, is finding a final resting place in Missouri.
Ann Schroeder of Cheshire told the Waterbury Republican-American (http://bit.ly/Uf9jX8 ) she researched the stone after her husband removed it from his family's cabin.
She found the descendants of Roswell and Hannah Pratt on the Internet, and they drove to Connecticut over the weekend to claim the stone.
The Pratts were buried in the early 1800s in the Grand Street Cemetery in Waterbury, which was closed in the 1880s. It's unclear how the stone made its way to Bantam.
It will now reside in a family plot in Breckenridge, Mo. where the couple's great grandson, Charles Henry Pratt, moved in the 1860s and opened a cheese factory.
