Elizabeth Conger (1677-1731)

She was the wife of John Sutton (1674-1750). John was the son of William Sutton (1641-1718) who was born on May 25, 1641 in Sciuate, Plymouth, Massachusetts and died in Piscataway, and Damaris Bishop (1645-?) who was born in 1645 in Eastham, Barnstable, Massachusetts and died in Piscataway on February 06, 1682/83. William Sutton was tried for stealing the church bible in Massachusetts and Damaris Bishop may have been killed by her own mother. (this is what is written at the site, but it is incorrect)

Damaris Bishop, born in Plymouth in 1646, was the daughter of Richard and Alice (Martin) Bishop. Damaris's mother, Alice Martin was the daughter of Francis and Prudence (Deacon) Martin, was first married to George Clark, the husband with whom she emigrated from England to Plymouth Colony. The couple had two daughters, Abigail and Martha. George died in about 1644 and she remarried December 6, 1644, to Richard Bishop, by whom she had one child, Damaris.

After four years of marriage, in July of 1648, Alice was accused of brutally murdering her daughter, Martha who was just four years old. Alice confessed though she did not remember doing the deed. She was hung for murder. it is now thought that she probably had postpartum depression

Elizabeth's tombstone reads: "Here lyes body of Elizabeth, wife of John Sutton, deceased May 10, 1731, aged 54 years".

Oldest grave:
Elizabeth appears to be the oldest born person buried in the cemetery (b. 1677) and has the oldest extant gravestone in the Stelton Baptist Church Cemetery (d. 1731).
