Inscription

The epitaph on the stone reads: Muss ich ihn wandeln, den nŠchtlichen Weg? Mir graut ich bekenn' es. Wandeln will ich ihn gern fŸhrt er zu Wahrheit und Recht. Hier ruhet die Asche von Ernst von Schiller, geb. zu Jena am 11 Julius 1796, gestorben zu Vilich am 29. Mai 1842. HerzensgŸte, rechtlichen Sinn und Geistesklarheit erbte er von seinem gro§en Vater, sein letzter Wunsch war ein Grab neben dem Grabe seiner Mutter. Translation: Must I wander on it, this nightly path? I fear it I admit it. Take it I will do gladly if he leads to Truth and Justice. Here lie the ashes of Ernst von Schiller, born in Jena on 11. July 1796, died in Vilich on 29. May 1842. Great kindness, truthfulness and clearness of mind he inherited from his great father, his last wish was a grave next to the grave of his mother.
