Treasure Chest Thursday -- Gravestone Record of Mehitable (Grout) Brigham (1725-1795) 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 Mehitable Brigham (1725-1795) of Westborough, Massachusetts Bay:

The inscription on the gravestone is:

"M'rs. Mehetabel Brigham
Relict of M'r. Moses
Brigham died Aug.
30'th 1795 in the 71'st
Year of her 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 Mehetabel Grout Brigham (5 Feb 1725- 30 Aug 1795), Find a Grave Memorial ID 63339092, citing Memorial Cemetery, Westborough, Worcester County, Massachusetts, USA; Maintained by Andy Macdonald (contributor 47287042) .

This is the only death record I have found for Mehitable (Grout) Brigham.  Her death is not in the Westborough Vital Records book.
Moses Brigham(1723-1769) married Mehitable Grout (1725-1795) 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.
