Tombstone Tuesday: Elisabeth Quimby






March 17, 1826

in the 69. year

of her age.

Go home my friends,

Dry your tears,

I must lie here

Till Christ appears.

Elisabeth is buried in the Old Sutton Cemetery,  Sutton Center, Merrimack County, New Hampshire in the Quimby family plot.  She is surrounded by family and luscious green moss.

I believe she is the daughter of Moses and Judith Bean Quimby where she is buried in their family plot.  She was born 4 July 1757 Kingston,  Rockingham, New Hampshire.   She is not of my direct line.  I post this information for others to research.
