Location of this stone is not known, I found the photo online in a family tree.
Jeremiah Maston Parkins was the son of James Parkins and Elizabeth Bondurant.
He was married to Sarah Haptonstall, and was the father of at least five children.
Jeremiah Maston Parkins was my gr-gr-grandfather's brother, or my 2nd great-grand-uncle [I think that's right!]
