Oct 17 1833
aged 44 years.
Calm was the hour's impressive scene
when silent death thy suffering clos'd
No pain nor anguish interven'd
But every feature seemed compos'd
Then rest in peace this hallowed spot
Thy dust shall never be forgot
While oft affection's tear shall lave
Upon thy low and silent grave.
