Our ultimate Grave-tober entry is found at the Mountain View Cemetery in Shrewsbury, Massachusetts. While it this stone is not remarkable in content or carver (Farber says it was the Fisher or Stevens shops), it has an epitaph that has stuck with me for years after I first saw it.


In Memory Mrs.

HANNAH, wife of Mr.


who Died April ye 18th


in ye 22nd year

of her


Endear’d to her friends, by thoſe

amiable Virtues, which dignify

human nature, and renders it

deſireable, even with its miſeries.

That is, for me, a goal to be striven for.

Good night, Hannah.
