Francis More Dimond
and Maria Eustis Parker"
the Hon. Josias Lyndon, Esq.
he was born in Newport on Rhode Island the 10th of March AD, 1704
and received a good education in early life. In the year 1730 he
was chosen clerk of the lower house of assembly, and of the
inferior court of the county of Newport and continued so with
great applause, with the intermission of only two years, until
his death. In the year 1768, to put an end to the violence of party rage,
he was prevailed on to accept the place of governor, which he filled
with reputation. He died of small pox at Warren, the 30th of March, 1778.
His manners gentle, and innocent his life.
His faith was firm on revelation built.
His parts were solid, in usefulness his shined.
His life was long filled up with doing good."
