to the
The beloved wife of

Aged 57 years
This lonely heart is at rest
Its beating and aching are oer
This quiet immovable breast
is marred by affliction no more
husband of the above
who died Feb 3 1881
Aged 81 years
Blessed are the dead that die in the Lord
grandson of the above

Aged 1 year 8 months and 12 days
Thy voice is now silent the heart be
now cold when thy smile and welcome
off us of old
We may…there is silence
And dwell…the memory of joys that
have (?)
