|Death: ||Aug. 31, USA|
Approximate birth date could not be calculated from the headstone transcription. The year of death is unclear to me: 1705? 1725? 1785? My best guess is 1725. [*]

[* If Lucy's death date is 1725, that would make her approximate birth date calculated to be 16 Jan 1724.]
"In memory of Lucy, daugh^tr of Mr. Benjamin & Mrs. Lucy Allyn.
She died Aug^st y^e 31^st, 17[?]5 aged 19 months & 15 days.
With rising joy the bud unfolds,
A parents heart to cheer,
Yet nought the power of death witholds,
From parents joy with sadness here."
