Joerg Sebastian HELMAN Translation: Joerg Sebastian Helman was born on the 14th of January, 1725 into this world, died on the 15th of February, 1784 and lies buried here. Watch and pray for you know not the hour in which your Lord will come. Matthew...?
Additional comments: The date on the tombstone is actually the date of baptism, not birth. He was born on the 8th of January, 1725. The original grave site is lost. Stone moved by the Western Md. R.R. Co. about 1885 and was re-set at Grindstone Hill in 1952. This photo was taken in February of 1982, and the stone has deteriorated significantly since then. Contributor: Robert A. Miller, Jr.
