A new novel about Elisha Benton and Jemima Barrows will be available soon. Written and self published by John Cuffe, it is based on the story of the young couple buried in the yard at the Daniel Benton Homestead. It will be available at the town wide picnic in September, and at our museums and the Tolland Red & White.
