Please help with date of death Jonathan Lovejoy

Jonathan Lovejoy, b. 1719 in Andover Mass, served in the French and Indian Wars and, according to the Lovejoy Genealogy, at least seven of his children served in the American Revolution.  Can someone help source his death -- or advise on how to cover the bases, such as "died after 1762" ?  Find-a-Grave has no death date, either.  Even C E Lovejoy's "The Lovejoy Genealogy with Biographies and History" does not list his date of death.  Find a Grave lists the location (Hollis, New Hampshire) but not the date.

"Find A Grave Index," database, FamilySearch (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:QV2P-5R5P : 13 December 2015), Jonathan Lovejoy, ; Burial, Hollis, Hillsborough, New Hampshire, United States of America, Congregational Church Cemetery; citing record ID 77691341, Find a Grave, http://www.findagrave.com.

Should we as profile managers agree to list his death as "after 1763"?

BTW:  Fixing this will help with my Error Report; so many of his children were born after the listed date of death.

Abiel must have upset his dad. Jonathan left him thirty cents!
A couple of months ago, someone in Wiki posted information about a Lovejoy -- it was Asa or Abiel -- who went west to seek his fortune in gold.  I may have to look for her post again -- because it would explain a few things, wouldn't it?  You see, in "old" New England, families had a lot of shame whenever someone went west during the gold rush.  I met an old man who whispered about it, so others around him would not know.  He was deeply embarrassed to share the information.

I'll have to figure out how to find that post.  What a story!
