Behold my night of Death is come
My flesh now rests beneath the Tomb
When the last Trumpet shakes the Skies
Then shall my slumbering Dust arise
This gravestone with a winged head is in excellent condition. Note the wings resemble a cape or cloak. See Marcy Baker (1795) - Dennis Ancient Cem and Sally Doane (1798) - Harwich for similar gravestones in very good condition. They all are carved in the style of the Codner carvers of Boston or Gabriel Allen of Providence.
