Lieut. John &
Mrs. Isabel Dinsmoor,
died Jan. 10, 1818
Death's sudden stroke dissolved my feeble frame,
Reader, prepare! you fate may be the same!
Renounce thy sins, by faith to Jesus fly,
Then welcome death, his gain for you to die.
I also blogged about the 22 year old Samuel Dinsmoor's brother, Capt. John Dinsmoor, who died at age 37 and left his parents, Lt. John Dinsmoor and Isabel Hemphill, to face growing old childless. That story is at this link: http://nutfieldgenealogy.blogspot.com/2012/07/tombstone-tuesday-1834-drowned-in.html
This stone caught my eye because of the scary epitaph written below the names and dates. Also, there is a barely visible line of inscription near the bottom that reads "???? Marble ??? 10 "
