Tombstone Tuesday ~ Nathaniel Treadwell and Hannah Endicott, Ipswich, Massachusetts

These tombstones were photographed at the Old Burying Ground, Ipswich, Massachusetts

Erected in Memory
Who was born Sep: 10th 1700
and having accepted & supported
the Character of a prudent
upright & serious Christian
died Febry 1, 1777 Aged 77 years
Nor wealth, nor Friends, nor Piety can save
One mortal from the all devouring Grave.
Yet Faith & Hope in Christ who rose, may sing,
Grave! Where's thy Conquerer!  Where O Death thy Sting!

As you can tell from the top photo, this stone is leaning forward 
and was difficult to photograph

In Memory of
Mrs. Hannah Treadwell,
Relict of Capt.
Nathaniel Treadwell,
who died July 6th
1792 Aged 87 years.
Blessed are the dead which die
in the Lord; for they rest from their
labours and their works do follow

Nathaniel Treadwell is my 6th great grand uncle.  I descend from his brother, Jabez Treadwell (1713 - 1780) and his wife, Lucy Haskell.   Nathaniel Treadwell was born 10 September 1700 in Ipswich, the son of Nathaniel Treadwell (1677 - 1723) and Hannah Unknown.  He was married twice, first in 1725 to Mercy Smith, and second to Hannah Endicott (above), the daughter of Zerrubabel and Mary Endicott.
