In Memory of Stephen Hill who departed this life Feb 9, 1834 in the 66th year of his age.

 

When this photo was taken, this stone and the matching footstone was located in the backyard of the Century Inn. Someone had taken it from the cemetery and brought it to the Inn. The map drawn in 1987 shows that at that time the stone was leaning against the fence of the cemetery as replacement stones had been put in the cemetery. Last year (2008) the tombstone and footstone were returned to the family that now owns the property where the cemetery is located and the stone is now back in the cemetery.
