John Sterrett, died 30 Dec 1864, aged 33 years, 9 months, 16 days


Hand-hewn sandstone...good work but name eroded away.

It appears to have a double "t" in name, but looks like ends in "se"

The other side says:

                                       herreststhe

                                       body of Beniam

                                       im Newman wo

                                      se borned 16 day

                                      of May 1784 die

                                      March 28, 1803

                                      his ache 19 year

                                      and 10 mots and 99

I believe this translates to "Benjamin Newman, 16 May 1784 - 28 March 1803"


A footstone has the initials J.B.


The following couple has 2 large matching stones:

Elizabeth H. Sterrett who departed this life May 10, 1821, aged 78 years.

Robert Sterrett, December 31, 1812 (?) aged 78


One nice stone with all information gone.
