Corolina, Evelina & Albort
Davis She Died March ye
27th 1799 in her 31st Year.

Look down upon this sacred stone and see
What death can do to you as well as me
Sweet bosom friend, your falling Sand is nigh
Children prepare, tis God that calls on high
Neighbours and friends alike must be ye same
Prepare for death in time, for God does reign.
