Featured Gravestone – Lewis Newman

DSC02650Section:  Episcopal

Material:  White marble

Small stone is darkening and fairly eroded.  Parts of the inscription are illegible.  A large crack divides the stone in two halves diagonally.

Inscription:  In Memory of Lewis Newman who died November 25, 1826 aged 46 years, 11 months, and 11 days.  Friends nor physicians could not save This mortal body from the grave Nor can the grave confine it here When Jesus calls it must appear.

The inscription was copied from the burial card on file with the Cemetery as the actual stone has become difficult to decipher.  The damage is by no means the worse suffered by headstones in this section.
