Josiah Baker 1810

Sacred to the memory of
died Dec 7th 1810
in ye 31st year
of his age

I once have loved. I once did health enjoy.
In youthful vigor clad without alloy
The stage of life I just was ushered on
With hope elated lifes full race to run
But heaven forbid it by its just decree
God short my life & set my spirit free
You who behold this stone where I lie
May remind you of Mortality
