The Old Burying Ground, Ipswich, Massachusetts
There are other Dodges for which we do not have photos, who were also buried in this cemetery.
Even with a map of sorts, it was difficult to find many of the stones.

And of Mrs. Elizabeth, his wife, whowas born March 10th, 1730; and died Sept. 22nd, 1785, in the 56th year of her age. His mind was open, ardent, and enterprising: He was a kind husband, a tender indulgent father. In his house he wsa liberal and ospitable: Faithful to his trust, upright in his intentions, in his operation active, persevering and extensive: By which he afforded Emplyment and subsistence to the industrious and the indigent; contributed ot the benefit of the publick, and merited the Character of a useful and valuable member of society.
His wife was moral, thoughtful, and sofar as her slender health would permit, attentive to the benefit and happiness of her Family. Deeply affected by the death of her husband, and the increasing infirmities of her feeble constitution, she languish'd and, three months after him, expir'd.
