Headstone to George Armstrong died 1783. Sandstone. Scrolled top and raised
cyma-moulded border with bead moulding. Relief carvings: angel head and
feathered wings, partly enclosed by festoon and flanked by Book of Life and
hour-glass. Slightly-convex oval panel, with raised enriched border, inscribed
to George Armstrong and his wife. Reverse inscribed:

Step softly ye Friends on hallowed ground ye tread,
Lest ye disturb the Mansion of the Dead.
A tender Parent rests in peaceful dust
His manners gentle and his actions Just,
Esteemed by all he liv'd, by all approved
And dy'd lamented, as he liv'd beloved.
