"Erected by this town
in memory of their pastor
Rev. William Emerson
who died at Rutland, VT, 1777
aet. 33
on his return from the American Army
of which he was a chaplain

Enthusiastic Eloquent
Affectionate and Pious
He loved his family his people
his God and his country
and to this last he yielded 
the cheerful sacrifice 
of his life"
