McKinney Obelisk, Sewickley Cemetery

A classic marble obelisk in memory of the Rev. David McKinney, who died in 1879. The inscription is still very clear; the epitaph, which was much more shallowly cut, is almost obliterated, but enough remains to recognize it as 1 Corinthians 15:57:

But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.
