Jacob Ford Senr. / He was Born / February the 19th Anno Domini 1738 / And Departed this life / January the 10th Anno Domini 1777 // And Being then / In the Service of his Country / Was Interred in this place / With Military Honors // In vain we strive by human Skill / to avoid the Shaft of Death / Heav'ns high Decree it must fulfill / And we resign our Breath / The friends who read our Tombs and mourn / And weep our Early fall / Must be lamented in their turn / And share the fate of all"
