Gravestone Capt. Edward LONG, Salem, NY

One of my favorite gravestones. This stone is among about one hundred Revolutionary War gravestones in the Old Salem Cemetery in Washington County, New York.

"In Memory of Capt. Edward LONG born October 22nd 1739 and Died October 18th 1792 in the 52nd Year of his Age. He Died Much Lamented by his Wife. -------- Pr. 12 Dollars" (***!!!***)
