Mehetabel Jenkins 1797

headstone tympanum

In Memory of Miss
Mehetabel Daughter of Mr
James & Mrs Mercy
Jenkins she Died Nov'r
ye 2d 1797 in her 24th Year

My friends for me no more lament
Let sighs no more for me be spent
For God has done his will divine
May you this warning voice attend
The death of your departed friend

The headstone displays a winged head in the style of the Soule carvers of Plymouth. Also see Rebekah Jenkins who was Mehetabel's 26 year old sister who died two weeks after Mehetabel. Both sisters have similar Soule style gravestones with similar inscription formats. Left photo supplied by Brian Nickerson October 2008.
