Sally Taylor 1830

full stone tympanum

In Memory of
Mrs SALLY wife of
who died Dec 26, 1830
AEt 36

Forgive, blest shade, the tributary tear
That mourns thy exit from a world like this
Forgive the wish that would have kept her here
And stayed thy progress to the seats of bliss

No more confin'd to growling scenes of night
No more a tenant pent in mortal clay
Now should we rather hail thy glorious flight
And trace thy journey to the realms of day

H Tribble sc Brewster

The gravestone is signed by carver Hiram Tribble of Brewster.
