|William Tarbell, Groton, MA, 1757|
Here Lies Ye Body of
Leut William Tarbell Who
Departed This Life Desmbr Ye
26th AD 1757 in Ye 69th Year
of His Age
Here lies intomb'd in this grave here
A Husband kind, a parent dear
A Neighbor good, the poor man's friend
Whom death hath brought unto his end.
It looks like the "AD" was added in after the rest of the line was finished.
Also, this is one of the more pathetic original verses I've seen.
