Elizabeth WARD

I love knowing that Elizabeth's gravestone is an original stone because Elizabeth died in 1700. Although it is aging and the mounting of it onto the granite monument is deteriorating, this is a great find for any gravestone lover especially when you can connect it to your family. (Elizabeth's maiden name is not known which is sad for all the descendants)

The Marlborough Cemetery inscription book states:

However this gravestone is not a field stone because it has shape to it.  Nice of them to tell me there's a footstone which gives further evidence to this being a headstone. It does say E. W. 1700.

 Many footstones in New England are NOT where they should be so sometimes you have to look around for them.
