Inscription.  

Pray
for the souls
of all
poor and afflicted
whose bodies
have been laid
in this cemetery
since 1841
R.I.P.
—————————————
This Holy Ground is sacred to the memory of all
who lie here forgotten and anonymous.
In life they were judged to be of so little worth
in their poverty that they were buried
without name or record.

Let all who visit this holy place atone by their
respect and reverence for that neglect

May Angels lead them into Paradise
