Gravestone of the Day: Jonas Fletcher

Jonas Fletcher, 1777, Groton, MA
HERE lies
the Body of Mr.
who departed this
Life Decr:   1777
Aged 83

This gravestone seems to have been executed with unusual inattention for a Park workshop stone. "Departed" is carelessly misspelled and there is no precise date of death.

My 5th great grandfather. The exact date of his death doesn't seem to be known. The Massachusetts Fletchers all descend from Robert of Concord, one of that town's first settlers.
