Early American Faith: Reverend Jonathan Lee (Part One)

EarlyAmerFaithI came across Reverend Jonathan Lee’s tombstone recently  – the impressive epitaph definitely caught my eye:

In Memory of the Rev. Jonathan Lee, this Stone, the fruit of conjugal affection and filial gratitude, is erected.

He was born July 4 AD 1718; Graduated at Yale College, 1742;
was a settled minister in the Gofpel in this town 45 years; and died
Oct. 8 AD 1788, in the 71 year of his age.
