Slate Gravestone for Dr. John Swinnerton, 1690, Charter Street Burying Ground, Salem.

John Swinnerton's gravestone in the Charter Street Burying Ground, Salem, is directly behind the "Grimshawe House," which was the family home of Sophia Peabody. In his unfinished story "Grimshawe," Hawthorne has Dr. Grimshawe's grave situated beside Swinnerton's, which is a row away from the grave of Nathaniel Mather, whose tombstone provided the epitaph for Fanshawe.
