Men of enterprise, here moulders a kindred spirit. He maintained a remarkable consistency amid the exciting circumstances of life and possessed the highest reputation for honorable dealing, extraordinary punctuality and unswerving honesty. Truth and justice he loved with all his heart, the rights of others it was his pride to respect. In all the qualities which distinguish man, he was among the first of his race. Inflexible firmness and untiring assiduity were his chararcteristics. He was a Christian.
(stonemaker J. Lansdwn, Fecit)
