1. Thomas Campbell Marker
Inscription. Born in County Down, Ireland, Feb. 1, 1763, and died at the residence of his son Alexander, Jan. 4, 1851, aged 91 years, 11 mthns, five days. Many years a minister of the Secession Presbyterian Church in Ireland and Scotland. In the United States upon arrival of his family in America 1802 he withdrew from the Presbyterian Communion and advocated a platform of primitive Christianity. In conjunction with his son, Alexander, he laboured in this with much success. More than forty years in Christian learning & piety he had few equals. As a Christian minister, husband, father had few superiors. Strong in faith and hope he triumphed over death and reposes in Jesus without a sorrow or fear. Happy the dead who die in the Lord for they rest from their labours and their works do follow them.
