Dorcas Nye 1808

In Memory of
Mrs Dorcas Nye
wife of
Stephen Nye
who died Oct 18th
Aged 28 years
& 8 months

Then from his closing eyes thy form shall part
And the last pang shall tear them from his heart
Yet shall thy grave with rising flowers be drest
And the green turf be lightly on thy breast

A post-1800 gravestone included for the epitaph. The carved image is unknown.
