Inscription

Memento Mori.

This stone is erected to ye memory of Majr James Allen, who died with ye small-pox Jan. ye 10th, 1789, in ye 54th year of his age. His body lies buried 3 miles south of this.

Stop, mortals, read now if you please,
See the effect of this disease;
'Twas Adam gave the wound at first,
So all his sons are doomed to dust;
But life's restored by God alone,
Flowing through the merits of his son.
