Thomas Gifford 1805

Thomas Gifford
27 Y's & 7 Mo
died Sep'r 17, 1805
of the wounds he received
from the bursting of a cannon

His youthful hopes were like the morning flower
Cut down at night and wither'd in an hour
But hopes more fair than youth or health can give
Rise in Immortal bloom beyond the grave

A post-1800 gravestone included for the epitaph. The carved image is unknown.
