A tall stone with a oval top flanked by two checked rounds; simple squared letters below an elaborately decorated 'To':

the memory of
Richard Wells STREETER,
who died February 3rd 1836
aged 27 years.
I was cut down in all my prime
It was God's will that I should be!
In heaven I hope with him to dwell,
My blessed Saviour for to see.
Grieve not for me my wife and friends,
Nor after me repine,
Death is the debt we all must pay
And no man knows the time.
