Mystery Monday: grave matters

Where on campus can you find this tribute to the “first rector of ye colledege?" To be clear, Pierson does not in fact lie there; the inscription lieth.

    Pierson Walkway. By the way, where in fact was Abraham Pierson buried? in Killingworth CT? Is this tombstone a repro?

    Surprisingly, this is not in Pierson College or the Pierson Walkway. And yes, this is a replica of Pierson's original grave marker in Indian River Cemetery in Clinton (formerly Killingworth).
