"SACRED TO THE MEMORY
Of the Revd James Caldwell & Hannah his Wife
who fell Victims, to their Country's cause
in the Years 1780 & 1781
He was the zealous & faithful Pastor
of the Presbyterian Church in this Town
where, by his evangelical Labours in the
Gospel Vineyard & his early attachment
to the civil Liberties of his Country
He has left in the Hearts of his People
a better Monument than Brass or Marble
Stop Passenger
Here also lies the remains of a Women
who exhibited to the World
a bright Constellation of the female Virtues
On that memorable Day, never to be forgotten
when a british Foe invaded this fair Village
and fired even the Temple of the Deity
This peaceful Daughter of Heaven
retired to her hallowed apartment
imploring Heaven for ye pardon of her Enemies
In that Sacred Moment She was
by the bloody Hand of a british Ruffian
despatch'd, like her devine Redeemer
through a Path of Blood
to her long wish'd for native Skies"
