The gravestone is in Woodside Cemetery in Westminster, Worcester County, Massachusetts. The Find A Grave memorial for this Samuel Whitney is here, and has a photo included. The inscription on the stone says:
I took the picture above on 17 July 2004 while visiting Woodside Cemetery in Westminster after the memorial service for my aunt and uncle, Edward Richmond and Janet (Roukes) Seaver in Leominster.
At the time, I thought that this was my 5th great-grandfather's stone because I didn't have a list of ancestors and their death dates with me. Now I do on my iPhone with the Ancestry.com mobile app and the RootsMagic mobile app.
Samuel Whitney (1719-1782), and his wife Abigail (Fletcher) Whitney (1720-1783), have memorials on Find A Grave, saying they are buried in Woodside Cemetery, but there are no pictures of their gravestones. Perhaps they are in the cemetery records, or the town records, and the stones have been removed or were never erected. I see that there is an open Photo request for Samuel Whitney (1719-1782) - I hope someone is able to do this!
