When Rev. Zechariah Symmes, Sr. died in Charlestown,
"he was honorably interred at the expense of the town. His grave was "covered and set comelie" by a stone-work laid in lime, together with a tomb-stone, procured by the selectmen of the town. The epitaph, which has been wholly effaced by the ravages of time, contained the following lines:
A prophet lies beneath this stone;
His words shall live, though he is gone "
