Erected to the memory of Leonidas Taylor. Born in the city of Philadelphia on the 3rd of July 1832. He grew to manhood in the city of St. Louis and was killed by the explosion of the Steamer Belle opposite this spot on the 5th of February 1856; his body was never found.

Far distant from those who loved him, the waters of the Sacramento will roll over him until till that day when the sea shall give up its dead.
