This is probably the most unique gravestone I have encountered to date. The gravestone is an inscribed stone spike. I almost missed it. Inscribed down each side:

"Jacob Worner"


"Desember 29 1711"

Father: Andrew Warner

Information provided by Christine Heath (#47566722):

His children:

Jacob 1681-1688
Rebecca 1690-
Jacob jr 1691-1747
Mary 1694-1779
Elizabeth 1696-
John 1698-1698
John 1701-
Joseph sr 1707-1743
David 1710-


A question that occurs is whether or not Jacob Warner is really in this grave, or if this is "only" a memorial marker for him. The Genealogical Dictionary of the First Settlers of New England reports that he may have died in a ship wreck trying to return to Massachusetts.
