This monument is erected
To the memory

Mr. JONAH NEWTON Junr.
The only Son of
Capt JONAH & Mrs. SARAH NEWTON
who fuddenly departed this mortal life
on the 1st of October 1794.
Aged 18 years & one Month & three days
As a Son and a Brother He was
dutiful and affection^ate
as a friend and Companion peculiarly
endearing and agreeable
But neither his own amiable qualities
nor the ardent affection nor the raifed
expectations of his friends
Could fecure him from a Submifsion
[in early Life] to the ftroke of
all conquering Death
Swept with a hafty torrent hence,
Like a vain dream we pafs;
Spring up and grow and wither foon
As doth the fhort liv’d grafs
Alas its gone and quickly too
When blafting Winds go ore
And then the place on which it grew
Shall never know it more
