Not my ancestor, but isn't this a great gravestone?

But my ancestor, so thanks for posting this!

What a cool gravestone. The detail is extraordinary. One of the things I love about the gravestones from the early 1700's back home.

Hi Midge,
Actually, this is the son of Dr. Thomas Delano who married Rebecca Mary Alden--one of John Alden's there is a 'family connection' ..

Thanks for the information. Now we know why this is near the Alden section of the cemetery. That's great.
