John Hutchins

Not only do I find a certain beauty in old churches and old cemeteries, but old grave markers can have a special beauty and dignity.  Here the ground surrounding the marker rather detracts from the beauty of the stone.

The marker for John Hutchins is n the Granary Burying Ground in Boston.  John Hutchins was my 6X Great Grandfather.  He was born in England in 1673, emigrated to New England, and died in Boston at age 65.

Below is the Granary Burying Ground.  The photo was taken in October 2010 by Susan Kaufmann
