Here Lyeth The Body Of Edward Thurston

306 years ago, on 1 March 1706, Edward Thurston died in Newport Rhode Island. He is my 10 Great Grandfather, and since he died so long ago the inscription is kinda cool and all olde English like. It says "Here lyeth the body of Edward Thurston who lived 90 years & departed this life ye 28th day of February 1706."
