Sally Doane 1798

full stone tympanum

In Memory of
the Wife of
Mr Joseph Doane, who
quit this transitory world
Sept 16th 1798 in the
21st Year of
her Age

How soon the lovely shadows fled
The pleasing object of our Eyes
Enshrin'd among the solemn dead
? cant forbid(?) our weeping Eyes

The gravestone displays a winged head carved in the style of the Allen carvers of Providence. Note the wings have been carved to appear as a cape or cloak.
