Tombstone Tuesday --John Paine (1661-1731) in Orleans Cemetery in Orleans, 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 7th great-grandfather, John Paine (1661-1731) in Orleans Cemetery in East Orleans, Massachusetts.

The partial inscription of the broken stone from the photograph is:

Body of
John Paine
Aged 70 Years
7 Months & 12 Days
Died Oct'r 7 [1731]

The source citation for this gravestone is:

Find a Grave, database and images (https://www.findagrave.com : accessed 07 September 2020), memorial page for John Paine (14 Mar 1661–26 Oct 1731), Find a Grave Memorial no. 39062000, citing Orleans Cemetery, East Orleans, Barnstable County, Massachusetts, USA ; Maintained by ditdit (contributor 47012745) .

Thank you to ditdit for creating this Find A Grave memorial and (I'm assuming) for taking this photograph.

John Paine (1661-1731) and Bennet Freeman (1671-1716)  are my 7th great-grandparents.  They married in 1689 in Eastham, Mass. and had 13 children.  I am descended through their 7th child, 
 Elizabeth Paine (1702-1772) who married Jabez Snow (1696-1760) in 1720 in Eastham.
