The following is a copy of the gravestone of Elijah Woodworth.

Elijah wrote the following:

"In memory of Elijah Woodworth, born 1792, who now resides in the spirit life,

a real personal being in progression eternally; served in the war of 1812; a sectarian

minister; an atheist lecturer up to 1852; first resident of Leslie, Ingham County;

a surveyor and Tompsonian doctor; the first itinerant lecturer in the field of

modern spiritualism, and controlled to write ancient languages in the form of

hieroglyphical characters; a modern seer and sage in natural and spiritual civilization,

whose sunlight shall never close; vilely persecuted by bigots although living in

temperance and good morality; who filled a mortal body with vigorous health

and memory nearly one century, travelling in seven states in the union."
