About Sarah Gates

Sarah; b. at Hartford, Conn., 1641; d. Nov. 7, 1709; m. 1661-2, George Gates, of Hartford and E. Haddam, Conn.; d. Nov. 12, 1724. He was an original proprietor of Haddam. Removed about 1658 to the east side of the river.

George & Sarah Olmstead Gates are buried in unmarked graves in Cove Burial Ground. As gravestones were expensive, many of the early settlers had no stones. The Cove graveyard in East Haddam was found to be necessary when ice in the river prevented crossing for burials on the Haddam side. Long in disuse, in 1901-04 it was cleared by the Nathan Hale Memorial Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution. http://www.connecticutsar.org/sites/cemeteries/
