Sarah Shaw 1792

headstone tympanum

In Memory of
Miss Sarah Shaw who departed
this life July 16 1792
in the 23 year of her age

Early not sudden fled my breath
Soon not surprising was my death
Come let the gay and blooming youth
Be ready now for death may soon
Seize on your frame & cut you down

The gravestone displays a winged head in the style of Lemuel Savery of Plymouth.
