This is an excellent gravestone! I wish he was my ancestor.

He's General John Whetcomb (1712-1783) Close-up of the carving at the top.

I located a Whitcomb genealogy at and discovered a page with this gravestone on it and an transcription. Here's a clip from the page:

Charlotte Whitcomb, Minneapolis, MN, October, 1804
