Epitaph: In memory of George I. Eacker, who departed this life on the twenty fourth day of January --
History: Alexander Hamilton's death as a result of wounds sustained during a duel with Aaron Burr is well-known; less well-known is the fact that three years prior to this, Hamilton's eldest son Philip was mortally wounded in a duel with George I. Eacker three years earlier, apparently over remarks Eacker had made about Hamilton's father. Hamilton, who used the very same rifle as his son in his famous duel, is buried in Trinity Churchyard; Eacker is buried just a few blocks north at St. Paul's. Philip is reportedly buried at Trinity as well, though the location is unknown.
