Mr. Francis Christopher Huber

The gravestone for Francis Christopher Huber (b. 1777, d. 1831) shows some serious delamination, but much of the stone is still legible—including the respectful “Mr.”


IN MEMORY
OF
MR. FRANCIS
CHRISTOPHER
HUBER, BORN
APRIL 18, A.D.
1777, AND DIED
MAY 2, A.D. 18
31 A[GED 5]7 Y,
& [1 M.?]

The badly damaged central carving was once a willow. The secondary decorations, interesting in their own right, are still in great shape.
