Inscription:

"Underneath This Stone Lies The Body of The

Revd Caleb Trowbridge, late Paster of the Church

of Christ in Groton, born of reputable Parents in the Town of Newton, educated at Harvard College in Cambridge

New-England; of such natural and acquir'd Endowments as render'd him an Ornament and Blessing in the several

Relations which he sustain'd; he was a good steward over the House of God, and discharg'd the Duties of his

Pastoral relation with Prudence and Impartiality, Diligence and Fidelity, He was a tender and loving Husband, an

affectionate and kind Parent; an agreeable and fithful friend; and a Useful Member of Society: He was much belovd

and respected while he liv'd, and dyed greatly lamented, the 9th day of Septr. AD, 1760, in the 69th year of his Age

and 46 of his Ministry, and is we trust reieving the reward of his Labours in the Kingdom of his Lord: and in Honour

to his Memory his loving People have erected this Monument over his Grave.

Blessed are the Dead that die in the Lord for they rest from their Labour and their works do follow them.

The Memory of ye Just is Blessed."
