"After the departure of P P Vanhorn to Pemberton, the minutes of the Pennypack church, under date of March (nth), 1762, contain the following:
Concluded to call Bro. George Eaton to supply us ye remainder of ye time, excepting ye 3rd Sabbath in every month, at which time he is under promise to preach at a place called the Ridge, near Germantown.
The place referred to as "the Ridge," is Roxborough.
Mr. Eaton did not live to labor long after this, as the inscription on the plain, blue marble headstone, which marks his last resting place, in the graveyard at Pennypack, will inform us. It is as follows:
In Memory of
the Rev. George Eaton,
who departed this life July
1st, 1764, aged 77 years
Who did delight his talents to improve.
And speak ye glorys of Redeeming love.
Mr. Eaton was born in Wales, and was brought to this country in 1686 by his parents when but a little babe. He was the brother of Rev. Joseph Eaton, whose son, Isaac, founded the Latin school, at Hopewell, New Jersey."
