In left-hand margin: Died 24 February 1812.
Note by Robert Seal: Kent, for this list of Graben pastors. Did you notice who the pastor was from 1738 to 1757: Francz Christian Henrich Beck.This explains why he uses the word "Ego" [= I or me] in Maria Magdalena Reichert's November 1739 birth/baptismal record and again in Jacobina Elisabetha Reichert's April 1742 birth/baptismal record. In both records, he was not only the pastor performing the baptisms but he also served as a baptismal sponsor.
Note that in the 1739 record his second forename is abbreviated "Chr:" and in the 1742 record it is spelled "Xstop" = Christop. Your list of Graben pastors record this as "Christian".
