Memo: 
If this stone was carved by Nathaniel Emmes (it is similar in many details to the stone carved for the mother of Nathaniel Emmes, 1715, Copp's Hill, and several other documented Emmes stones), then it is probably backdated by at least six years. Compare also to the work of "WC," James Gilchrist, "JN."
