Tombstone Tuesday ~ Unknown Mother, Bedford, New Hampshire

This tombstone was photographed at the Old Bedford Cemetery,
in Bedford, New Hampshire.  The first burial here was 1737.

This cemetery is not visible from the road,
you have to hike up a hill and through some woods.
This tombstone was leaning against the gate
on the left side of the entrance.

Farewell, Mother, thou hast left us,
And thy loss we deeply feel.

This small tombstone somehow was damaged and moved to the gate from somewhere inside the cemetery.  Only the bottom half survives, with this poignant epitaph.

Does anyone know to whom this stone belonged?
