The photo is a cemetery photo and not a gravestine image. It reads: The Burial Place

This portion set apart in 1636. Enlarged in 1638. It was the only burial place for nearly a century. Here were buried Allin Adams Belcher Dexter and Haven ministers of the church and Alleyne Lusher Dwight and Fisher with other founders of the town.

I have attempted to contact the Find a Grave contributor and asked if the info is from a gravestone transcription or other source. I will follow up if and when he responds.

Abraham Shaw is my ancestor too, but I have different birth and death dates for him, which I found in the Massachusetts Find a Grave Index, which states that he was born 2 Jan 1590 and died 25 Mar 1639. He was buried at Dedham. The index has a photo of his plaque, but it's too small for me to read. Can anyone with better eyesight read it please?
