Treasure Chest Thursday -- Gravestone of Mary (Herrington) (Rogers) Grout (1693-1774)

 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 1774 gravestone Mary (Herrington) (Rogers) Grout in Westborough, Massachusetts Bay:

The gravestone is in Memorial Cemetery in Westborough, Massachusetts.  
The inscription on the stone is:

wife of
Mr. Joseph Grout

Mary Herrington was born 2 January 1692/3 in Watertown, Massachusetts Bay, the daughter of Edward and Mary (Ockington) Herrington.  She married (1) Daniel Rogers (1687-1711) on 17 December 1710 in Watertown.  As Mary Rogers, she married (2) Joseph Grout (1693-1758) on 3 January 1716/7 in Watertown.  She died 18 August 1774 in Westborough, Massachusetts Bay.
