Hannah Wells 1780

headstone tympanum

Here lies ye Body of
Wife of Capt PETER WELLS
who Departed this Life July 24th
1780 In the 34 Year of her Age

Ye Guardian Angels that protect the Just
Preserve in Silent peace this Sacred Dust
Here undisturb'd and quiet let her Sleep
Whilst I Behind am Left alone to Weep
To weep indignant thought I'd Rather say
to wait impatient for that awfull day
When in her tomb my Ashes join with this
Shall meet above in Extacy and Bliss.
