Joseph A. Wirz30 Jul 1878 —12 Apr 1899In memory of
son of
J.H. & A.E. Wirz
He is waiting over yonder
for the ones who
loved him best,
He'll be glad to see
them coming
Home to Heaven,
sweet land of rest.

This is the only headstone in this very small cemetery, with only 1 other grave, as evidenced by a fieldstone marker.
