Eleazer Nickerson 1796

full stone tympanum

In Memory of
who departed this Life
Nov 26th 1796
in the 48th Year
of his Age

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.
