Tombstone Tuesday: Rev. John GARDNER

Originally uploaded by midgefrazel
This huge stone, resting on several brick supports (like tablet stone) is the grave of Rev. John GARDNER and Mary his wife and it reads in part...

"Under this Sepulchral Stone/rests in Christian Hope/of a Blessed Resurrection/ what was mortal/of the Reverend John Gardner/and Mary his wife."

This stone is so massive that it would have to be photographed in sections and assembled to read all of the information on it!

Is this man related to the Salem, Mass. Gardners?

I don't know as yet. I have not researched him as I have not taken all the photos of his gravestone.
