Inscription reads: In memory of Lydia the wife of Francis Walker who departed this life March 31st 1855 aged 86 years. Why should we dread our mortal doom. That turns us back to clay. And tremble at the awful doom and shudder at decay. Not while I feel the mortal throb, Oh be my sins forgiven. Then death shall pave the gate of life. The grave my road to heaven.
