Gravestone of the Day: John Butterfield

John Butterfield, 1766, Chelmsford, MA

Here lies the Body of
Capt: John Butterfield, who
departed this Life Janur:
8th 1766 Aged 67 Years
11 months, and 26 days.
The sin of Adam's laid me lo,
For sin hath wrought an overthrow,
From dust I came, to dust I'm come,
And now the dust's bcome my home;
Then Christ comes down with saints to Reign
Then dust me nomore shall detain.
