Treasure Chest Thursday -- Gravestone Record of Moses Brigham (1723-1769) in Westborough, Massachusetts

It's Treasure Chest Thursday - a chance to look in my digital image files to see what treasures I can find for my family history and genealogy musings.

The treasure today is the gravestone record for Moses Brigham (1723-1769) of Westborough, Massachusetts Bay:

The inscription on the gravestone is:

"Mr. Moses
Brigham died
Dec. 3'd 1769
in the 47'th
Year of his Age."

The source citation for the Moses Brigham burial record on Find A Grave is:

Find a Grave, database and images ( : accessed 26 January 2022), memorial page for Moses Brigham (2 Jan 1722–3 Dec 1769), Find a Grave Memorial ID 63339042, citing Memorial Cemetery, Westborough, Worcester County, Massachusetts, USA; Maintained by Andy Macdonald (contributor 47287042) .

This is the only death record I have found for Moses Brigham.  His death is not in the Westborough Vital Records book.
Moses Brigham(1723-1769) married Mehitable Grout (1726-1795) on 2 May 1749 in Westborough, Massachusetts Bay.  They are my 5th great-grandparents, through their son Phinehas Brigham (1755-1802) who married Lydia Batherick (1752-1795) in 1779.
