Gravestone Moss May 21, 2016

gravestone moss  john priest  I’m not sure how you could identify this gravestone in Lancaster Massachusetts as marking the burial place for John Priest, my 7X Great Grandfather.  The grave marker dates from the early 1700’s.  Think of the weathering due to 300 years of New England seasons.  There is a certain visual and symbolic beauty to the stone.

  1. How lucky you are to be able to trace back your family tree to the early 1700s. I can only get as far as the late 1800s. 😕
