Another tombstone in Easton, Md.’s Spring Hill Cemetery that caught my eye is that of Robert William Goldsborough (1800-1857). His gravestone/monument is unusual compared to those around him.

He was a priest who helped erect St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in Hillsboro, Md. (see the historical marker for the church).

Goldsborough was a UPenn alumnus (classes of 1821 and 1824). He and his wife, Rebecca Hammond, are mentioned in Genealogical Notes of the Chamberlaine Family of Maryland (Eastern Shore) (p. 89-90; available on Google Books).

The engraving on his monument reads “Faith wrought by his works & by his works was faith made perfect.”
