Discoveries My Ancestor Founded a Town In America

Since I knew I had an ancestor from Lincolnshire, England, I searched through the marriages to find his marriage to Anna Stevenson. They were my 8th great grandparents… William and his wife are said to be buried in the Founder's Cemetery called Wequetequock Cemetery in Stonington, New London County, Connecticut. There is a monument erected there for the four founders of Stonington. I am descended from all four men.
