Edward Bacon 1783

table stone

Here lies interred the remains of Edward Bacon, Esq.
who having served his generations according to the will of God
died greatly lamented March 16th 1783 aged 68 years.

He sustained sundry places of honour & profit
& it may be justly said of him that he was
of great abilities, very free of conversation
& always ready to help the needy.
He is justly & truly lamented by all that knew him
and was an ornament to the church til his death;
he was the obliging neighbor, the faithful friend, the pleasant companion,
the indulgent master, the tender father, the affectionate husband
& a friend to mankind in general.
