The tomb of Rev. Jeremiah Shepard.
The memory of the just is blessed.
Mrs. Mary Shepard, died March 28th 1710, AET. 53, the mother of 9 children. 5 died.
A prudent wife is from the Lord. Prov. 31, 10 & 25 verses.

Rev. Jeremiah Shepard, died June 2, 1720, AEt. 72.
Elijah's mantle drops, the prophet dies;
His earthy manson quits and mounts the skies.
----So Shepard's gone.
His precious dust, death's prey, indeed is here,
But's nobler breath 'mong seraph's does appear;
He joins the adoring crowds about the throne,
He's conquered all, and now he wears the crown.
