Another famous grave is that of Elisha Williams (1694-1755) who, from 1716 to 1718, taught in Wethersfield 14 students from what would become Yale.
Thereafter, Williams was ordained pastor of the Newington church. He later relocated to New Haven where for 13 years he was rector (chaplain) of Yale. Williams, however, preferred living in Wethersfield and returned here in 1739 to become a legislator, then a judge, and later chaplain to the Connecticut troops during King George's War. His grave, marked by a table-top monument, is located on top of the small hill that begins by the Connector. As a teenager, Edwards attended what became Yale at the time when classes were being conducted by Elisha Williams in Wethersfield. Reverend and Colonel Elisha Williams

Reverend and Colonel Elisha Williams
Elisha was born in Hatfield on the 24th of August, 1694, the son of Reverend William Williams, pastor of the Hatfield church for nearly 56 years, and Martha, daughter of Reverend Seaborn Cotton. Elisha is also said to have planted a row of elms which grew to a giant size along Broad Street. One account tells of how the famous Elizabeth Canning accompanied Elisha and his wife from England, but that is hardly possible. Few Wethersfield men attained such worthy commendation as Colonel and Reverend Elisha Williams, and that in spite of continual poor health and discouragements. Williams was a "New Light" minister, as those who supported the Great Awakening were called. When Williams led Yale in Wethersfield in 1720, Jonathan Edwards was his student. George Whitefield was a friend of Edwards and Williams. Many problems arose however, and a minister, Rev. Elisha Williams, was not settled until 1720. As Willard says, Williams left for New Haven after four years in 1726 to become the fourth president of Yale. Williams had ministered at Canso, Nova Scotia. What Willard doesn't say is that Elisha Williams was called back by New England to reprise his King George's War role, in part, during the French and Indian War. Unfortunately, Williams' health was now frail and he died while doing this. Read more about Rev. Elisha Williams in Houses of Worship. I did not know this much information about Reverend Williams, quite remarkable! I have another article, buried somewhere among my papers, that Reverend Williams taught Yale students in the Buttolph-Williams home, with Jonathan Edwards as one of the students.

However, as part of that review, I encountered a truly excellent defense of the basic notion of individual rights in a public brochure written by Elisha Williams, member of the Connecticut General Assembly and former rector at Yale University.
The brochure was entitled "The Essential Rights and Liberties of Protestants," with the subtitle "A reasonable Plea for The Liberty of Conscience, and The Right of private Judgment, in Matters of Religion, Without Controul from human Authority.
