Inscription.  Glassmaker and ironmaster who was born at Cologne in 1729 and died at Charming Forge in 1785.

Picturesque figure of colonial America, his memory is perpetuated by his artistic glassware, by traditions of the Baronial Pomp of his career and by this churchyard which he gave to the Manheim Lutherans in 1770 for one red rose.

His glassworks were at the northwest corner of Charlotte & Stiegel Streets.
