Aged 69y 7d (original stone says 69 years). A tablet stone was made for Williamson when he died. When Elizabeth died much later a large stack stone was made with both of their names on it.

Inscription on original stone: "Farewell my wife and children all/ From you a father Christ doth call/ Mourn not for me, it is in vain/ To call me to our sight again"

Inscription on shared stone: "Blessed are the dead/ which die in the Lord/ from henceforth, yea/ saith the Spirit,that/ they may rest from their/ labors and their works/ do follow them"


From the 1914 History of Hendricks County: "Williamson Page grew to manhood in Lee County, Virginia, and there married Elizabeth McCloud, who also was a native of the same county, and the daughter of John McCloud and wife, natives of Iowa. In 1830 Williamson Page and wife came to Indiana and settled first in the southern part of Hendricks County. He entered land in Eel River Township, two tracts of fifty-six and one-half acres each. He moved onto his land in the fall of 1834, built his rude log cabin of notched log and started in to carve his fortune out of the wilderness. At this time there were no roads except blazed trails from one settler's cabin to another; dense underbrush filled the lowlands and covered the highlands of the county; deer, wolves, turkey and small games of all kinds were very numerous, and the county was merely a hunter's paradise. Williamson Page had been a blacksmith in Virginia and his profession was one which was a very necessary accomplishment in a pioneer community. Gradually the farm was cleared and as the sons grew up and he had increasing assistance, the farm was eventually brought under cultivation. Williamson Page and wife were the parents of a large family of children: Nellie, Nancy, Elizabeth, Stephen, Andrew J., Jeremiah J., Chesley, Robert, Williamson and Demerius."
