Thomas Bason born in Bobbington

I thought a local historian in Bobbington might be interested in the following. I am on holiday staying with relatives in Bennington, Vermont, US. In the local churchyard in Old Bennington, near Robert Frost's grave I came across a gravestone for a Freemason called Thomas Bason born in Bobbington on 15th August 1857. Apparently he was a friend of the Colgate
(toothpaste) family who lived nearby. He died on 7th June, 1942 and was buried here. The grave says that he lived there 51 years.
