Died June 1831
Aged 42

Erected by Martin Barry of Rathcormack in the county of Cork, Ireland,
in memory of his brother Peter Barry who died in
St. John’s Newfoundland June 1831
aged 42 years.

Your brother dedicated this memorial to your soul as a tribute of affection,
being the last present to perpetuate your memory where
you laid in Mou-----[undecipherable].
May God on high that rules the air
have mercy on your soul.

[The Telegram of Saturday May 23, 1936 reported that workmen
constructing a new Pentecostal church on Casey Street
in St. John’s uncovered a 105 year old tombstone.
The tombstone was reported to be 6 feet by 4 feet
and made of local stone.
