Does anyone have an opinion on the birthdate shown on the gravestone of Matilda (Pringle) Hatherley?  It looks like 1804 (as expected), but the month and day are difficult to make out.  The month seems to start with "J", and I think I see an "e", so I think it is June.  The day looks like 25, but the 2 is rather strange looking (strongly looped at the top of the 2).

Did not find the exact day and month of birth, but I share John Bigelow and Mary Warren as ancestors.

I believe I would ask the person that took the picture to go back and use chalk to highlight the dates. I know it is a no no, but sometimes it does help and the first rain washes it away. Also, the person doing the picture has the best eyes at the stone to decipher it correctly. Many early stones like this have eroded where they are illegible.
