This stone is erected to
perpetuate the Memory of
Madam Ruth Whitney
who departed this Life
in the 72nd year of her age
She was successfully married
to the Rev. David Stearns if Lunenburg
and to the Rev. Aaron Whitney of Petersham
Both of whom she survived.
For Diligence, Patience, Piety and Knowledge
She was eminently distinguished
As this stone cannot tell all her virtues
As a wife she was prudent and faithful
As a mother discreet and tender
As a neighbor friendly and charitable
As a christian intelligent and exemplary
A life thus spent terminated with composure
On this first day of November 1788

Hello,I have some more information on Ruth (Hubbard) (Stearns) Whitney. Would you please add this when you have a chance? I'm including the cites just for confirmation. Ruth Hubbard b. 11 Jan 1717 at Concord MA (Concord VRs) Her parents were Jonathan Hubbard 54845047 and Rebecca (Brown) Hubbard 54844918 There are problems with the find a grave pages for her husbands (they are listed in the wrong cemeteries). I'd hold off adding links to her husbands. Ruth died at Walpole, 1 Nov 1788 ("Descendants of John and Elinor Whitney" NEHGS Register, vol XI, p. 229)
