The gravestone displays a trumpeting angel with the message 'Arise the Dead'. It is carved in the style of the Lamson carvers of Boston. Samuel Hinckley (1804), father of Susanna, has a very similar gravestone. It has been reported that Samuel's gravestone was carved by Nathaniel Holmes of Barnstable who copied Susanna's Lamson stone. The left photo taken about 1982 is from the Farber Gravestone Collection owned by the American Antiquarian Society. The right photo was taken in 2000.
