John Thacher 1799

full stone tympanum

In Memory of Mr
John Thacher he died
Aug'st ye 12th 1799 in
his 60th year

Why should we fear the hour of Death
Since life is but a span
By length'ning out our feeble breath
Are more involved in sin
Here I resign my mortal frame
Submissively to GOD
In hopes to meet a Heavenly Train
Through our Redeemer's Blood

The gravestone is carved in the style of the Soules of Plymouth.
