On the stone is the following inscription:
"In memory of Marvel F. Edney. Son of M.M. and Eliza Edney, who was born the 27th April 1842, and died of typhoid fever in the Marine Hospital, city of Charleston, S.C., on the 8th Dec. 1861. His benevolent and gentle Spirit was early touched by religious influences and it obeyed the call and he became an exemplary member of the M.E. (Methodist Episcopal) Church, when a boy of tender years, and on the 15th of May 1861 his country called for volunteers he as cheerfully obeyed that call and became a member of Co. A "Edney Greys" 25th Regt. N.C. Troops and continued an obedient and faithful Soldier both to God and his country to the hour when his generous Soul was summoned away from the ranks of the armies of this world to take its place in the ranks of the armies above. This noble Christian and Soldier Boy was a gem plucked from Earth. Peace to his ashes. Rest Soldier rest, thy warfare is o'er."
