Not much is visible at all on this monument. The only part of the text I can pull of this stone is tentatively a June date. According to the database put together by Dr. Kool (date unknown), he was 16 years 3 months old at death. His birth date is listed not listed, though the year would have been approximately between late March and early April of 1871.
