This is an old Lamson carved gravestone in good condition. There is a pronounced vertical grain in the slate. Standing next to this gravestone are the Lamson carved gravestones of Joseph Howes (1743) with a strong diagonal grain and Isaac Howes (1728) with a strong horizontal grain. The three stones together make a dramatic display.
