Edwin Bourne Nye (1834 - 1889) was born in Sandwich. He was employed in James Thompson's stone cutting shop along with Joshua Faunce. His marble gravestones can be found in Sandwich, Falmouth and Barnstable.
Markers XIX (2002) and Markers XX (2003) published by the Association for Gravestone Studies contain extensive articles by author and gravestone researcher James Blachowicz concerning several 19th century marble gravestone carvers located on Cape Cod. These articles include Edwin Nye. Many of these 19th century marble gravestone carvers including Nye were influenced by carver William Sturgis.
