Born c.1681, 52-year-old Samuel Ward has a strikingly odd gravestone. Among the possibilities for its unique are appearance are that it was unfinished, or the carver deliberately emphasized the lines forming the initial W when carving the soul effigy in its tympanum. This effigy is of the winged-skull type popular during the early colonial era, but it lacks the teeth and feather detailing typically seen, giving it a sci-fi, "alien" look. Its inscription reads:

"Here Lief the
Body of Samll
Ward Deceafed
May ye 15th 1733
Ageed 52 year"

* Ageed (sic)
