Tombstone Tuesday -- Nathaniel Guild (1712-1796) in Guild Burial Ground, Walpole, 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-grandfather, Nathaniel Guild (1711-1785) in Vine Lake Cemetery in Medfield, Massachusetts:

The inscription from the photograph is:

SEPT 9, 1796.
in the 87th year
of his Age.
Mr. Nathaniel Guild lays beneath
this stone. He gave this land for
a burying ground and was the
first person buried here.

The source citation for this gravestone is:

Thank you to Deborah A. Smith for creating this Find A Grave memorial and for taking this photograph.

Nathaniel Guild (1712-1796) and Mary (Boyden) Guild (1708-1776) 
are my 6th great-grandparents.   Nathaniel was the son of Nathaniel Guild (16779-1774) and Mehitable Hartshorn (1683-1771).  Mary Boyden was the daughter of Thomas Boyden (1682-1770) and Deborah Wight (1685-1730).    Nathaniel and Mary (Boyden) Guild married in 1733 in Dedham, Mass., and had 6 children, including my 5th great-grandmother, 
Mary Guild (1735-1800), who married Amos Plimpton (1735-1808), in 1756.
