I am in search of the gravestone of my immigrant ancestor Capt. Roger Clap Can you tell me where in Boston he is buried?
Your ancestor is buried at King's Chapel Cemetery on Tremont Street in Boston. I can tell you this as I was only there recently myself, and this stone still stands upright off the back path of the cemetery. His gravestone inscription - Here Lyteth Buried / Ye Body of Capt / Roger Clap / Aged 82 Years / Deceased Ye 2 Of / February 1690/1. This comes from our publilshed volume of inscriptions for Boston by Robert J. Dunkle and Ann S. Lainhart, Inscriptions and Records of the Old Cemeteries of Boston. (Boston, Mass., NEHGS, 2000), pg. 737.
