His headstone reads:

His wife, Catharine (George) Rees, died six year later. She is buried at Dutch Hill Cemetery in Bloomsburg, Columbia County, Pennsylvania. Dutch Hill Cemetery is located on the grounds of what is presently called Emanuel Dutch Hill Bible Church. The church and cemetery are located at 592 Dutch Hill Road in Bloomsburg.
