From the records of the Hartland Congregational Church (now in East Hartland)

June 10, 1798 Desdemony d/o Ambrose and Mary G. Cowdry born

Jan. 4, 1816 Lorrain Giddings and Desta Cowdry married, both of Hartland

Dec. 10, 1819 child of Loring Giddings died age 3

Dec. 11, 1819 son of Lorrain Giddings buried



Hale cemetery records for East Hartland cemetery evidently could not read the name.
