Romaldkirk, Teesdale, Co. Durham

In the churchyard is a gravestone to Jonathan Horn (1724?-1798)

Genius improved by unwearied
Application acquired a most
extensive Knowledge of the
MATHEMATICS ....
Horn seems to have been a surveyor. [Letter from John Fauvel describing Robin Wilson's discovery and photographing of this in 1991.]
