Remember death

Here lies Interr'd ye
Body of Mrs Anna
Munro, widow of Mr
Robert Munro (who
was Slain by the Enemy
on the 19th of April 1775)

who departed this
Life Aug 20th 1775 In
ye 57th year of her age.
Our cousin (half first cousin, eight generations removed) Ensign Robert Munroe, grandson of William the Immigrant, was the only officer to die on Lexington Green. He was then 62. His wife Anne Stone (1718-1775) survived him by only four months. You can’t see it in this photo, but there is an empty space to the right of Anna’s stone. Robert lay at Anna’s side until 1799, when they moved the bones of all the Martyrs back to the Green, where they now lie under what some claim as America’s oldest monument.
