This is an image of the old cemetery at the northern tip of Bellamy's land. Bellamy's grave is the large flat stone elevated off of the ground.

Questions for Photo 3

1. Compare Bellamy's grave marker with those of the other people buried around him. How are they similar? How are they different? What can be inferred about Bellamy from his grave?

2. Does the appearance of Bellamy's tombstone support or weaken Ezra Stiles' belief that Bellamy's influence would fade after his death?

* The photo on this screen has a resolution of 72 dots per inch (dpi), and therefore will print poorly. You can obtain a larger version of Photo 3, but be aware that the file will take as much as 26 seconds to load with a 28.8K modem.
