      Ebenezer Percival, son of James and Abigail, died before 1728 as he was not named in his father's will. There is a fieldstone marked "E P 1713/14" [plot #20] and next to it is a field stone marked "A P 1713" [plot #22] which is no doubt that of Abigail [Robinson] Percival. In plot #26 is where the fieldstone marked "I P 1728" for James Percival is located [per 1958 map of the burying yard]. The other son Timothy Percival, born 2 October 1712 in East Haddam, also was not named in his father's will and was most likely dead by 1714 at the same time as his mother when a terrible epidemic swept through the town that winter of 1713-14.
