The entry for Timothy Edwards on the findagrave.com website appears to be incorrect. At the time of this writing, it lists the Bridge Street Cemetery in Northampton, Massachusetts. However, Timothy was reportedly buried with his wife in Stockbridge.
The photo of his tombstone on the findagrave.com website matches the design of his wife's tombstone at Stockbridge. The Northampton cemetery that is listed is in the town where he was born. Since his tombstone mentions his birthplace, I believe this may be why the website lists the wrong cemetery.
The other photos on the website are of a monument that contains Timothy's birth and death dates. This only confuses the matter more as that monument is located at his parent's gravesite in the Princeton Cemetery in New Jersey.
