Elizabeth Thacher 1773

full stone tympanum

In Memory of
Beloved Wife of Capt JOSIAH
THACHER Jun'r Who died May 10th
1773 in ye 36th Year of Her Age

Naked as from the Earth we came,
and crept to life at first.
We to the Earth return again,
and mingle with our Dust.
The dear delights we here injoy,
and fondly call our own,
are but Short favours borrow'd now
to be Repay'd anon.

The gravestone is carved in the style of the Lamsons of Boston.
