    • Notes: 
    • In 1853 a memorial marker for Stephen Stow was placed in the Milford Cemetery and has the following inscription:

      To administer to the want and soothe the miseries of these sick and dying soldiers, was a work of extreme self denial and danger; as many of them were suffering from loathsome and contagious maladies.
      Stephen Stow voluntarily left his family to relieve these suffering men, he contracted disease from them, died, and was buried with them. He had already given four sons to serve in the War for Independence. To commemorate this self sacrificing devotion to his country, and to humanity, the Legislature of Connecticut resolved that his name should be inscribed upon this monument.
