Transcription of the tombstone:
Beneath this silent marble sleep the remains of Thomas N Braselmann, son of Dr. T and H. Braselmann. Born in Newberry District SC Feb. 26, 1834, married Mary A T Rogers March 15, 1853, to whom he was a devoted and affectionate husband. He fell July 21, 1861, at the Battle of Manassas, defending the southern cause, which he felt was just and right, leaving a wife and three little children to mourn his loss. He was one of the first to sacrifice home and all that was near and dear to him, for freedom, and liberty.
We weep! Our earthly joys have fled, That once loved form is now cold and dead. But blessed hope looks far beyond the bounds of time, When what we now deplore Shall rise in full immortal prime, And bloom to fade no more.
