Tombstone Inscription: Sacred to the Memory of David Nunez Cardozo. A native of the State of New York and for the last sixty years a resident of this city, who departed this life on the 16th day of the month Tammuz, in the year 5595 of the Creation, corresponding to the 13th July 1835, aged 81 years, 11 months, and 14 days.

The deceased served as a Subaltern Officer in the militia of South Carolina during a great part of the Revolution, until made a prisoner of war in 1780. He was also attached to the Forlorn Hope when the lines of Savannah were attacked by the combined forces of Gen. Lincoln and Count de Estaling.

As the deceased was an example of patriotism, so in private life he was a model of the domestic virtues, of a sound judgment and well cultivated mind. His career through life was marked by the esteem and respect, and his end by the sincere regret of numerous friends and connections.
