Father Time
Father Time
This stone is of particular interest as it appears to have been borrowed for John Tawley and his brother Thomas from its original owner. By comparing it to a remarkably similar one in Salem - dated 1698 - and observing that the inscription on this stone seems to be sunken and perhaps recut - noted authority Harriet Forbes concluded that the stone was appropriated for the Tawleys. It is the work of the great "Stonecutter of Boston," and depicts Father Time with his scythe and hourglass symbolizing the flight of time. 15" high. Marblehead - Massachusetts c. 1698, recut 1746
