Inscription.  Beneath this stone are interred the remains of Joshua Seney who was born near the spot which now contains his ashes March 4, 1756 and died October 20, 1798. From the commencement of the American Revolution at various periods of his life he filled, with ability, some of the highest stations and discharged, with integrity, some of the most important duties to which his native state could appoint him; preserving through the whole a character both private and public unstained by a single vice. In 1776, a Whig, a Democrat in 1798 he zealously and unceasingly maintained the liberties of his country and died as he had lived, an honest man and a Christian.
