William D. Speight, aged 4


In Memory of William D., son of David T. and Susan Speight, died November 11th, 1859, aged 4 years

They laid him under the fresh green sod / With a heart almost broken yet trusting in God / The heart and the form which I cherished here / I shall meet again in a happier sphere

David Speight, father of little William, was born in 1823, was a sea captain and lived at Indiantown most of his life. He suffered a stroke eleven years before his death at the home of his son Allen in Maywood, New Jersey, in 1891. This small lot was unclaimed in 1886. Only the base remains of the stone once marking this grave. It is very close to the Thomas Estey plot.
