Gravestone of the Day: Obidiah Parker

Obidiah Parker, 1758, Groton, MA
Here lies the Body of
Ensign Obidiah Parker
who departed this Life
Septr. ye 28th 1758 in the
61st year of his Age

Halt passenger as you go past
Remember time it runneth fast
My dust in narrow bounds do lie
Remember man that thous must die
This dust revive it shall again
And in a grave no mor remain
When trumpet Sounds I shall be raisd
For this Gods holy word hath said
