About Sgt. Thomas Baylies

Thomas Sergeant father Major Nicholas Baylies was a A patriot. He was a representative in the General Court of Dighton, Mass., where he died. He was born in England. DAR Lineage Books Vol.125, 1916, p.151-152, member #124498.


We then hear the sad tale of Bethiah wife of Thomas Sergeant Baylies, dying in childbirth ( at 47!!!) leaving behind 1 daughter and 9 sons) it mentions the inscription on her grave stone. When I went to Dighton last week, the stone has a break and only the first line remains. This is something that I would like to have carved and returned to Walker- Blake. It is as follows:

"Step hither mortal, drop a tear.

Think on the dust that slumbers here.

And while with grief my grave you see,

Think on the glass that runs for thee."

Walter Ashworth

According to History of Bristol County Ma. Page 235 he had Fourteen (14) Children
