Notes: 

A R.S. with Inc'd. script using at times both upper and lower case lettering (even within the same words). The last three lines show a reuse of the slab after 59 years. The script, again Inc'd. is more regular in its style. The general condition of the slab is good. Uncovered in 1990. See also Nos. 164 and 165 for other Murphy monuments. (See also Mourphy, No. 417).
