HONOR ROLL

REVOLUTIONARY WAR
Bani Parmelee 1757-1839
Eliab, Nathaniel, Nathaniel, John, John

 


Bani was buried at Kelsey Cemetery in Cornwall, Middlesex County, Conn. His grave would be near the left side of the above photo, not too far from the road.

When I visited the cemetery on Veterans Day 2007, I found the replacement DAR marker and what I believed to be Bani's headstone lying face-down. I didn't have any kind of lever with me and the stone was too heavy to turn over without one.

Next to his marker was that of his second wife, Charity.
