Tombstone Tuesday - Major Jacob Haskell

Cemetery: Lower Cemetery, New Gloucester, Cumberland County, Maine
Photo Date: 30 Jun 2007
Subject Name: Major Jacob Haskell
Transcription: In memory of/Majr. Jacob Haskell./died Sept. 29, 1825./AEt. 82.

Jacob Haskell was b. 12 Aug 1745 to Jacob and Tabitha (Day) Haskell in Gloucester, Essex County, Massachusetts (Gloucester VR to 1849). Based on this birth date and the death date on his gravestone, this would put his age at 80 at time of death not 82. I have also seen an alternate death date for Jacob as 29 Sept. 1820.
