Born c.1746, American patriot Isaac Smith fought in the Revolutionary War. He died in his "50th" year in December 1796, survived by his 46-year-old wife, Susannah, who was buried beside him some 23 years later.
His brown sandstone stele, located under a tree in the SE quarter of the churchyard, appears to have been made by Boston carver William Grant, who moved to New York, and then to New Jersey during the 1740's. where he remained active into the 1790's. Much of his work, which features pear-faced soul effigies, is in the Presbyterian churchyards of Orange and Woodbridge, NJ.
Isaac Smith's name also appears on the D.A.R. Monument just outside the front entrance to the church. This memorial, which was dedicated in 1931, consists of a bronze plaque affixed to a boulder and honors the Revolutionary War veterans buried in the churchyard.
