Inscription:

Here lies the Body of
Joseph Williams, Esq;
son of Roger Williams, Esq;
who was the First
white Man that came to
Providence; he was Born
1644, he died Au 17th 1724,
in the 81st Year of his Age.

In King Philip's War he courageously went through,
And the native Indians he bravely did subdue,
And now he's gone down to the Grave & he will be no more,
Until it Please Almighty God his Body to restore,
Into some proper Shape, as he thinks fit to be,
Perhaps like a Grain of Wheat, as Paul sets forth you see.

Corinthians, 1st Book, 15th Chapter, 37th Verse.
