Antapas Lewis 1783


In Memory of
Mr Antapas Lewis
Died Feb'ry ye 31st
1783 in ye 31st Year
of his Age.

A winged head in the style of the Soule carvers of Plymouth. The photo was supplied by Cynthia Moore July 2011. Her high resolution photo clearly shows the date as February 31. Perhaps the carver was thinking of the age when he incorretly carved the date. Other sources put the death date at February 11, 1783.
