Stevens is buried in a small cemetery in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. His
tombstone has this inscription:
in this quiet and secluded spot
Not from any natural preference for solitude
But, finding other Cemeteries limited as to Race by Charter Rules,
I have chosen this that I might illustrate in my death
The Principles which I advocated
Through a long life
EQUALITY OF MAN BEFORE HIS CREATOR
