North Berwick, Me., Gravestones.—The following inscriptions are from stones in an old family burial lot, in North Berwick, Me., which I copied recently.

Mark Nowell was a grandson of Capt. Peter Nowel of York, Me., and was my great-grandfather. He was a soldier and sailor in the Revolution, and a Revolutionary pensioner. His wife was Betsey Parker, and belonged to a branch of that family which I have not been able to identify.

Mrs. Eunice Nowell was a sister of Mark.
