Ann, wife of Samuel Graves (1738) by midgefrazel

Her name is Stone; his name was Graves
An early, well preserved gravestone in the North Cemetery in Wayland, Massachusetts (which was Sudbury at the time she lived).

Ann STONE, daughter of Daniel Stone and his wife Mary Moore was married to Samuel Graves in 1700. She died at age 69 on 14 March 1738 in the 69th year of her age.

Called "the light bulb" head, the teeth are there to warn passerby folks that death comes to all which is why it is called the DEATH HEAD.
