Tombstone Tuesday -- Abigail (Fisher) (Plimpton) Clark (1711-1785) in Vine Lake Cemetery, Medfield, Mass.

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

Here is the gravestone of my 6th great-grandmother, Abigail (Fisher) (Plimpton) Clark (1711-1785) in Vine Lake Cemetery in Medfield, Massachusetts:

The inscription from the photograph is:

In memory of
the widow Abigail
Clark, who died Feb.
19 1785 in y'e
743th year of her

Just of curiosity, did you get permission from the photographer to republish the photograph here?
