Tombstone Tuesday -- Gravestone of Benjamin Seaver (1757-1816) and Martha (Whitney) Seaver (1764-1832) in Westminster, Massachusetts

I have collected a number of gravestone photographs from Find A Grave over many years, and thought I would share them one at a time for Tombstone Tuesday.

Here is the gravestone of my 4th great-grandparents, Benjamin Seaver (1757-1816) and Martha (Whitney) Seaver (1764-1832), in Woodside Cemetery in Westminster, Massachusetts:

The inscription says:
June 20, 1816
AE. 59
his wife
Sept 2, 1832
AE. 68
their dau.
Sept. 18, 1825
AE. 19

The source citation for this gravestone is:Woodside Cemetery (Westminster, Worcester County, Massachusetts), Grave Markers, Benjamin Seaver, Martha W.  Seaver, and Rozilla Seaver monument, personally read, 1994.

Benjamin and Martha (Whitney) Seaver are my 4th great-grandparents, through their son Benjamin Seaver (1791-1825) who married Abigail Gates.

A biographical sketch for Benjamin Seaver is in
