James Parker 1802

full stone tympanum

In Memory of
Mr James Parker
he died Nov'br
ye 6th 1802 in his 56th year

Look down upon this sacred stone & see
What death can do to you as well as me
Sweet bosom friend your falling Sand is nigh
Children prepare, tis God that calls on high
Neighbors and friends alike must be the same
Prepare for death in time for God doth reign
