Re: Richard “Kettle” – Charlestown, Mass, 1633
I have a booklet "A Guide at a Glance of Historic Boston" which mentions this man.
His gravestone (pictured) is in the Old Burying Ground (1638) in Charlestown, Massachusetts.
"First Masonic Grave in America - 1680.It is told that the Grand Lodge of England ordered no other stone be erected showing Masonic devices in such numbers."
It looks as if his age is 71 and he died on Jun 29, 1680.
