James Christie 1811


In Memory of
Mr James Christie
who was killed
Nov'br 9 1811
aged 24 years
11 Mon's & 15 days

Life is a span, a fleeting hour
How soon the vapor flies
Man is a tender transient flower
That in the Blooming dies

The gravestone displays a sunburst. The use of the word 'killed' in the inscription is very unusual.
