Inscription: Lieut James Butler died Nov 19 1801 Aged 48 years Though after my skin worms distroy this body, yet in my flesh shall I see God

Note: This is from the King James Bible, Job 19:26 and seems to be a rather common headstone inscription. The spelling of 'distroy' may have been contemporary or just an error.
