Inscription

Here lies the body of Nathaniel Gray Having previously explored this country He in the winter of 1793 whilst it yet was a wilderness, took up his abode and cultivated this field, a small portion of which his remains still occupy. Before his departure from this life, he had the3 satisfaction to see the wilderness blossom like the rose.
He was a devout man & a pious Christian, influenced by the divine precepts of that Religion which he not only professed but practiced.
He acquitted himself of his duties to this family and society with truth and sincerity.
On the right lies the Body of Bethiah, his widow, born February 26th - died 18th August 1811. They were happily united in their views here and hereafter, and cheerfully marched hand in hand in humble hopes of obtaining the reward appointed for the elect - eternal bliss.
Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord.
