    Gooding, William Jr. gravestone
    Inscription: In Memory of William Gooding Who departed this life Jan 30, 1803 aged 42 years. This saint of God, that sleepth here, Will at the judgment day appear; In shining garments will be dres'd, And live forever with the blest. While he liv'd here, had praying breath, Smiled often when he talked of death; His conversation soared above, What this vain world inclines to love.
