These stones mark the graves ofAnne and ChristopherBirckheadThey are believed to be the oldestdated tombstones in Maryland

This registers for her bones,her fame is more perpetual than these stonesand still her virtues, though her life be gone,shall live when earthly monuments are none.Who, reading this, can choose but drop a tearfor such a wife and such a mother dear,She ran her race and now is laid to rest,and allaleguis sings among the blest.
