In Memory of Mrs
Mary Soule
Widow of Mr.
Zachariah Soule
of plymton who
Decd May ye 14th
1777 in ye 74th year
of her Age

This stone looks like  it was carved by a member of the Soule family. I'm not sure how Zachariah and Mary were related to the carvers, but it doesn't seem presumptuous to assume that there was some connection.
