The Ezra Smith stone (1770) in Foxboro (Figure 13) may be an uncompleted tympanum blank by Allen Jr., the borders and lettering later supplied, possibly by Daniel Farrington of Wrentham.

Fig. 13. Ezra Smith, 1770. Foxboro, Massachusetts.

The next pair of single-outline stones in the twenty has a unique Allen-originated border and, despite the wear, the suggestion of an undercut jaw as well. The Goddard stone also has a rare crown. 1754, 1755 Nahum and Martha Ward, Shrewsbury (re-lettered) 1763 Hephzibah Goddard, Shrewsbury (John New lettered)
