Inscription

Sacred to the Memory of Deacon Ephraim Sayre
who departed this life
Oct. 24th, 1819 in the
73rd year of his age.
He was an affectionate Husband,
a kind parent and faithful friend: as a
private Christian, he adorned his profes-
sion, as a Deacon and Ruling Elder in the
Church of God, he was preeminently useful.
He professed religion in early life and lived
in old age without dishonoring his
profession.
And when his gentle Spirit plumed by
faith, fled from this world of woe, to
weeping friends 'twas solace sweet to trace
it homeward to its native Heaven.
Blessed be the deard who die in
the Lord.
