A fine, square stone deeply and elaborately carved at its top with two winged cherub faces and drapes; the last six lines of the poem are now below the surface of the ground:

In Memory of
two Sons of Thomas and
Philadelphia CARLY
of this Parish. Harry died
August 5th 1772, Aged 20 Years.
John died Octr 4 1772,
Aged 22 Years.
This Earthly house our spirit leaves
And all created things:
A Heavenly house for to receive
Built by the King of kings
Where our Redeemer dwells
With whom we hope to be
And all our Friends in Christ
Shall soon come after we.

Haslewood p52
