Approximate birth date is calculated from the headstone transcription below. The stone is slightly eroded and the last line is buried beneath the ground, so the transcription is very helpful.

Headstone transcription from:

"Memorial Inscriptions from Cemeteries in the East Parish Barnstable, including Dimmock's Lane, Meetinghouse or Cobb's Hill, Lothrop's Hill the ancient Burying ground, & Parish Line. From Jan. 1683 to 1894."
Unknown creator, hand calligraphed manuscript, listings alphabetical by family name, with additional notes written in the margins.
No publishing information.

From the transcription:

"Here lies y^e body of Mr. James Allyn who departed this life October y^e 8th 1741 aged about 51 years."

"1690" added into the margin.
