Cheek to Jowl
In a small, out-of-the-way cemetery in Tariffville near Old St. Andrew's Episcopal Church, there are two gravestones honoring Hezekiah Holcomb. The one on the right is for Captain Hezekiah Holcomb, who died in 1794 at the age of 69. On the left is a monument for a different Hezekiah Holcomb -- probably his son -- who died in 1820.
They must have been very close. Or their families must have been very cheap.
