Can anyone decipher the inscription on this headstone.  John Hoadley born 1791-1794 England buried    
Greenwood Cemetery Zanesville, Muskingum County, Ohio 1878.
Suspect he might have been born Yorkshire   ???

Not sure about the word before 18*91. It should be a month but looks as if it starts with an H - maybe Mar or Aug
