Samuel Mayo 1798

headstone tympanum

memory of
Mr Samuel Mayo
who died March 7
Etat 80

In Deaths cold hands a prisoner bound
To sleep in Silence under Ground
Yet by the Grace the Gospel gives
I know that my Redeemer lives

A flying cherub with a round head and hair combed forward. See Nathaniel Arey Atwood (1801) for a similar gravestone most likely by the same carver.
