Anthoney Ackley

  • Birth unknown
  • Death 19 Apr 1782
  • Burial Manhattan, New York County (Manhattan), New York, USA
  • Memorial ID 11001434

Born c.1725, Mr. Ackley died at age 57. His brown sandstone stele with its roller coaster profile features a puffy-cheeked soul effigy in its tympanum, its scarf-like wings and a trio of stars adding to the overall effect of exhuberance. His epitaph, however, resonates with the gloom of the earlier colonial period, and is a variation on the Puritan classic: "Behold and see as you pass by, as you are now so once was I".


Inscription

"In Memory of Mr.
Anthoney Ackley who
Departed this Life April
19th, 1782 Aged 57 Years

Hark from ye tomb a doleful sound
Mine fears attend the cry
Ye living men come view the Ground
Where you must shortly lie."
