Congressional Cemetery in Washington, DC

The Latin inscription at the top is the closing portion of Sir Thomas More’s epitaph.  It effectively translates to “So kinder death shall grant what life denied.”  The barcode though… I have no clue about that.  Does it represent numbers? His birth/death date, for instance? I have no idea… and I really don’t know how I would even go about finding that out.  Anybody an expert barcode scanner? 😛
