************TRANSCRIPTION************
In memory of
Mr Joseph Brewster
who was drowned June 19th, 1807
in the 60th year of his age
also Mrs. Deborah wife of
Mr. Joseph Brewster
who departed this life
September 19th, 1814
in the 61st year of her age

For a lov'd Father and a Mother dear,
We do lament, and drop a filial tear;
God grant we all may meet, in realms of day,
Where woes, and tears, are ever done away.
*************************************

Directions to grave: From the main entrance on Mayflower Avenue make a sharp right inside fence on to Linden Avenue (along fence) and follow to the 2nd entrance to Cypress Avenue (on left), bypassing the first. There is no sign, but it is diagonally across from the cemetery/First Parish Church connecting driveway. On Cypress Avenue proceed about 100 feet and stop where the avenue bends slightly to the left; the grave is on the right 6/7 rows and about 50 feet in (From Cypress look for the Sonny grave go straight in).

Note #2: The transcriptions are written down on-site for best accuracy but due to the age of the markers they can become pretty worn (especially marble) and mistakes on my part can still be made. I leave in misspellings and abbreviations as found. Occasionally you will see the use of the old English character ʃ' in place of the letter 's'. From what I see this practice was stopped during the first decade of the 1800s.
