This stone in the 1902 cemetery transcription said:

According to the 1936 W.P.A. Historical Inventory by William McClung, it said:

"Not far from the center, of this Glebe, is
a grave marked with a flat slab, lying flat
on the ground, which marks the last resting
place of Colonel John Willson and his wife.
Following is an exact copy of the inscription."
