Inscription:
"Peter Bulkeley B.D.
a nonconformist to the
English Church.
Emigrated to this
Country for Religious
Liberty. He arrived
in Cambridge, 1634 and
was a leader for those
resolute and self-denying
Christians, who soon
after went further into
the Woods, and settled
on the Plantation in
Musketaquid.
He died in Concord, Mass.
March 9th, 1659
in his 77th year.
The family motto,
"neither rashly nor timidly"
was eminently
characteristic of the
American family."
