"Sacred to the Memory of Christian Rizer who was born on the 1st day of Nov. 1794, and departed this life on the 10th day of Oct.    1877.  He was a consistent member of the Baptist Church for many years. On his deathbed he was perfectly calm and resigned to the will of God.  Triumphant is the victors brow, fanned by some guardian Angel wing; O grave where is thy victory now, And where O death is now thy sting."
