Approximate birth date could not be calculated from the headstone transcription. The year of death is unclear to me: 1705? 1725? 1785? My best guess is 1725. [*]

Headstone transcription from:

"Memorial Inscriptions from Cemeteries in the East Parish Barnstable, including Dimmock's Lane, Meetinghouse or Cobb's Hill, Lothrop's Hill the ancient Burying ground, & Parish Line. From Jan. 1683 to 1894."
Unknown creator, hand calligraphed manuscript, listings alphabetical by family name, with additional notes written in the margins.
No publishing information.
"Allyn", page 2.
Strugis Library, Barnstable, Massachusetts:
1. Lothrop Collection Manuscripts, folder 6
2. Manuscript available online through the "Town and Local History Collection".


[* If Lucy's death date is 1725, that would make her approximate birth date calculated to be 16 Jan 1724.]

From parents joy with sadness here."
