Inscription on Joshua Stow's headstone:
"Hon. Joshua Stow
Born April 22, 1762
Died Oct. 10, 1842
Author of the article securing
Religious freedom in the
Constitution of his native state.
To every species of tyranny and domination
A constant and formidable foe.
Now first in peace, for the impartial page
Shall greet thee as an honor to our age.
Long in these climes thy memory shall remain
And still new tributes from new ages gain."
