The wreck of the bargue Mexico in 1837, 115 dead. The Bristol was also shipwrecked a week earlier. The unclaimed dead from both shipwrecks are buried here. The monument was erected in memory of the loss of life from both ships. Raynor Rock Smith was a hero in saving 8 persons from the wreck of the Mexico. This poem was engraved of one panel on the stone. "In this grave from the wide ocean doth sleep The bodies of those that crossed the deep And instead of being landed safe on the shore In a cold frosty night they are no more"
