Tombstone Tuesday – John Lynde

Capt John Lynde 1723

“Here Lyes Buried

Who Departed this
Life September 17

John is buried in Bell Rock Cemetery in Malden, Mass. I love how many of the tombstones of this era were decorated.

  1. Nice photo! I’m related to some of the early Lyndes in Malden. We had our first apartment there, and used to walk through some of the old graveyards, and Bll Rock was my favorite. At the time, I didn’t know I was related to half the cemtery!
