Inscription:
This STONE is erected in remembrance of JOSEPH AMES, Who died March 7th AD 1813, aged 65. He was esteem'd by all who knew him, and most by those who knew him best.

In that dread hour, with a faint pang,
Tearing the tender fibers of the heart,
His immortal spirit struggled to be free.
Then, even then, his hope forsook him not,
For it existed beyond the narrow verge
Of the cold sepulchre.-----The petty joys
Of fleeting life indignantly he spurn'd,
And rested on the bosom of his GOD.
