Translation:

Here lies in the Lord Anna Maria Altman
Born in the year of Christ A.D. 1701
And died the 20th of March 1775.
I die cheerfully because I will someday rise again
Out of this dark and gloomy earth, my grave,
I will go forth glorified in great splendor and light.
With great joy I shall look upon God's countenance.
