In memory of Anders Olaf Hanson, first Sexton of this church, who died October 9th 1863 aged 36 years.
He was a man of sincere piety, diligent labours, unbound self denial, fervent charity, a consistent churchman, a devout communicant, a faithful Sunday School Teacher.
To his worth this witness is borne, in the Church which he helped to build, by the congragation which he served.
"I had rather be a door keeper in the house of my God, than to dwell in the tents of un-Godliness." Psalm LXXXIV, 10.
Blessed are the dead which die in the Lord from henceforth. Yea, saith the Spirit, for they rest from their labours, and their works fo follow them" Rev. XIV 13
