Born c.1671, William Smith died in his 90th year. His gravestone is made of brown sandstone which was probably quarried from the Passaic River. It features a soul effigy of the winged death's head type, and appears to be the work of a craftsman known as the Common Jersey Carver. Both the effigy and the inscription are finely wrought. The final line of the latter, which is now below ground level, probably read "Of his Age".
