Birth: 1782
Death: Aug. 14, 1814
North Carolina, USA

This appears to be the transcription of a cenotaph meant to memorialize Benjamin. He is presumably buried in North Carolina. A similar cenotaph is found in this cemetery for Samuel Annable, who died within nine days of Benjamin, also in North Carolina. Approximate birth date calculated from the transcription.

Headstone transcription from:
