The headstone and foot stone for Mark Haskell

Memento Mori
Erected in Memory
of Mr. Mark Haskell
son of Deacon Mark
Haskell who departed
this Life Decr. 3d, 1783
In the 71st year of his
This world's a shadow.  Life a span
Toil, pain & death the lot of man;
But grace substantial good supplies
Hope here & endless bliss above the skies.

In Memory of Mrs
who departed this Life
May: 13th 1783: Aged
62 years.
Blessed are the dead which die
in the Lord, that they may rest
from their Labours, & their works
do follow them. 

Mark Haskell is my 6th great grand uncle.  I descend from his sister, Lucy Haskell (1715 - 1789) who married Jabez Treadwell (they are also buried in this same cemetery).   Mark Haskell, was born 19 August 1713 in Gloucester, Massachusetts, the son of Mark Haskell (1687 - 1775) and Martha Tuthill.  He married in 1739 in Ipswich to Hannah Dutch.
