The following Epitaph is etched into Joseph's headstone.

In Memory of Maj
Joseph Daniels, who
died June the 2nd 1779 in
the 56th year of his age

Now slain by death who spareth none
and lies full low under this stone
Take heed and thou shalt see
as I am now, so shalt thou be
Rotting in dark and silant dust
Prepare for death, for die thou must
Life is uncertain, death is sure
sin is the wound, Christ is the Cure
