Portrait, right border, of Rev. Jonathan Pierpont Gravestone, 1709, Wakefield, Massachusetts

This superbly executed portrait effigy of Rev. Jonathan Pierpont reading his prayer book was carved by the Charlestown stonecutter, Joseph Lamson, or his son Nathaniel. The stone is initialed "N.L." This is an exceptional example of early New England gravestone art.
