Additional Information:

Old Section, Number 34: From Patricia Morrow - Windham Town Historian:

Luther died in Windham on 17 Mar 1880, his death being reported in the 18 Mar 1880 issue of The Windham Journal, a day before he supposedly died.

Luther's first wife, Lucy Hosford, died in East Jewett of billious dysentery on 21 Nov 1870 at the age of 57 years, 6 months and 20 days, a year previous to the date carved on her gravestone.

Luther married Margaret Fisher at East Jewett on 24 Nov 1875. So far I've been unable to locate a death notice for Margaret, although she apparently died before the 1880 census was taken.
