  • Notes 
    • The Preston City Cemetery is located at the intersection of routes 164 and 165 in the center of Preston, Connecticut. Enter the cemetery from route 165, follow the main road for a few hundred feet until you reach a large granite Morgan monument on the right. Turn left and proceed approx. 2/3 of the way from the road to the far side of the cemetery (behind the fire station). Thomas Branch's stone and footstone are near a large granite monument to Rev. Samuel Treat. The stone appears to have been carved by Josiah Manning. What remains of the inscription is as follows: In Mem[ ]/Mr. Thom[ ]/who Dep[ ]/life Nov[ ]AD 1778 in[ ] 80th/year of[ ]is Age. The footstone clearly reads Mr. Thomas Branch. The stone is listed in the Hale collection [1]
