Inscription:
Susan Dryer has kindly provided this transcription:

In memory of
Mary Philips
Who departed this life
28th day of January A.D. 1817
in the 71st year of her age.

Corruption earth and worms
Shall but refine this flesh
Till my triumphant spirit comes
To put it on afresh.

Susan points out that the poem is by Jonathan Edwards, the famed 18th Century New England theologian.
