Classification: Query

Does anyone know the circmstances of the death of Cpt Nathaniel Howland ?
I know that most records have him as "died at sea between Cuba and Africa"
There is a grave site in Rhode Island, is it just a marker??
Born 1772 died March 1804 married to Hannah Peck.
there is a picture of the headstone on Findagrave but it is very difficult to read, does anyone know what it says??
