Tombstone Tuesday - Aaron Smith (1765-1841) in Medfield, Massachusetts

Aaron Smith (1765-1841) was one of my 4th-great-grandfathers. His gravestone stands in Vine Lake Cemetery near the center of Medfield, and is probably next to or near that of his wife, Mercy (Plimpton) Smith.  I received this photograph from a friend in the early 1990's (thank you, Linda T!):

The simple inscription is:

In memory of
Dec. 4, 1841:
aged 76 years
