|Joseph Peirce, 1747, Grove Hill Cemetery, Waltham, MA|
Here lyes ye Remains of Mr.
JOSEPH PEIRCE Who lived & served
his Generation by ye will of God Till ye
73d Year of his Age & then died Augst ye 29
1747 & was laid to his Fathers & saw corruption
& died in Hopes of a Glorious Resurrection
He Constantly did work He Earnest did Intreat
And then He Constantly did go & at Gods House did meet
To Here what God ye Lord would unto him Impart
& then He did Return again Rejoyceing in his heart
What an awkward epitaph.
