Birth: 1727
Death: Aug. 13, 1782
Bristol County

Stand still kind reader and spend a tear
Upon the dust that slumbers here
And whilst you read the fate of me
Think on the glass that runs for thee
Like as the potter mounds the clay in fashion to his mind
Thus God doth give and take away
and we should be resign'd.
