Long Description:
Mr. Thatcher's personal information is on the shoulder of the base to the cross, and it says:


Nov. 11, 1858
Mar. 28, 1904
Age 45 Yes. 4 Mos. 17 Dys

The epitaph is actually on the side, below the personal information, and is a variant of:

Remember stranger, as you pass by,
As you are now, so once was I.
As I am now you soon will be,

The last line is mostly worn away, but it is something along the lines of "Prepare for death and follow me."
Was the inscription legible?: Yes
