I have at long last discovered that Capt. Charles Alden HIERN who died aboard the "Virginia" in 1846 following a terrible accident during a violent storm was buried in Lezayre, Isle of Man on 11 March 1846. His widow, Catherine, nee Christian, was also buried there on 2 February, 1865. Is there any way I can get to know what is inscribed on his tombstone? He was born in New York and was a much respected sea captain on the "Ajax" and the "Virginia", both of them immigrant ships travelling between Liverpool and New York. I am hoping that his date of birth will be given on the inscription, thus completing many years work on this member of my family. Many thanks.
