King's Chapel

King’s Chapel Burying Ground is Boston’s oldest cemetery, dating back to 1630. It is the final resting place for some of the earliest colonists, including Mary Chilton who was the first European woman to step ashore. Puritans did not believe in religious icons or imagery, so the early colonists used tombstones as an outlet for artistic expression of their beliefs about the afterlife.

He then leaves you with these instructions:

  1. Look at the number assigned to the plot you chose.
  2. Subtract 1 from that number.
  3. Multiply the result by 3.
  4. Add 12.
  5. Divide by 3.
  6. Add 5.
  7. Subtract the first number you chose.

Enter the name on the headstone for that plot below:
