Inscription


Erected
in memory of
CAPT. AMOS HILTON.
who departed this life June 6 1811
in the 74 year of his age.

A member of Ceboque church.
He set a good example to a wicked place.
You who did not follow his example during
his life. follow it now after his death.

Tis he adorn'd my naked soul,
And made salvation mine,
Upon a poor poluted worm,
He make his graces shine.

Note: slate; facing northwest; measures 37 1/4" high; 23" wide; 2" deep

Thanks to Char Mitts for the transcription and tombstone material and dimensional info.
