About Hezekiah Usher, Jr.

The profile picture is of the gravesite of Hezekiah & Lydia Usher. For another picture of his tombstone, go to the Media section. Hezekiah's inscription reads: "In memory of Hezekiah Usher who died March 28th 1809 in the 74 year of his age". Based on that, his year of birth would be 1735?

*Watros/Watrous, b. 7 Feb 1780 East Haddam CT; removed to North Olmstead, OH. NOTE: Watrous is actually a nephew of Hezekiah. Watrous' birth father was Robert Usher, brother of Hezekiah, who asked Hezekiah to care for his children Watrous and Elizabeth upon his death. This information is from the Find A Grave Memorial of Watrous Usher. I will leave this here for now because I don't have the information about Robert, or the lineage to place Watrous with his birth family. Further research is needed.
