About George Brown

gravestone inscription: HER LIES THE BODY OF GEORGE BROWN OF EASTHAM DEC'D Ye 18th OF JANUARY 173? IN THE 51st YEAR OF HIS AGE

Notes

  1. "The sandstone gravestone displays a winged skull. Severe surface erosion obscures the inscription and carved image. The 1905 survey of Cove reported that George Brown died January 18, 175? in his 51st year and the surface of his gravestone was worn. This inscription information was included in the 1976 survey as the gravestone was unreadable in 1976. In 2005 genealogical researcher C S of Boston determined from records that George Brown was born about 1685 and died before 1738 rather than in the 1750's. It is a common error on old stones to read "3" as "5"."
  2. "The data for the Brown family is poor, so far. Caveat lector."
