A family burial plot in Union Cemetery was purchased on Christmas Day, 1851, by the heirs of James Felmette for $9.18. Eliza, wife of James Felmette, died July 8, 1855. Her epitaph reads:
“Deaest Mother thou has left us,
Here thy loss we deeply feel,
But tis God that has bereft us,
He can all our sorrows heal.
Yet again we hope to meet thee,
when the day of life is fled.
Thou in heaven with joy to greet thee,
where no farewell tear is shed.”
Descendants of this historic family still reside in the Greenwich area.
