|Lot Conant, 1767, South Burying Ground, Concord, MA|
Interred the Remains
of Mr: Lot Conant, who
departed this Life
September. 20th: 1767.
In the 90th: year of
The sin of Adam's laid me low,
For sin hath wrought an overthrow;
From dust I came to dust am come,
And now the dust's become my home;
When Christ comes down with saints to rign
Then dust me no more shall detain.
The Park workshop carvers used this verse more than once. I think it's fairly awkward, but someone must have liked it.
