DIED AUGUST

In Ye 47th
YEAR OF HIS 
AGE

Nathaniel Treadwell is my 7th great grandfather.  He was born 13 June 1677 in Ipswich, Massachusetts, the son of Nthaniel Treadwell and Abigail Wells.  He married Hannah Unknown sometime before 1698, and they had seven children.  He died young on 17 August 1723, only 47 years old.  His widow remarried to George Hart on 4 April 1724 in Ipswich.

I love the death's head on this early stone.  The head is so primitive, it looks like a cartoon face!
