On three other stones, we were only able to read the poems:





STONE [1] ‘FRIENDS OR PHYSICIANS COULD NOT SAVE
THIS MORTAL BODY FROM THE GRAVE
NOR CAN THE GRAVE CONFINE HER HERE
WHEN CHRIST SHALL CALL HER TO APPEAR.’










STONE [2] ‘YET THOSE NEW RISING FROM THE LAND
WITH HISTORY BRIGHTER FAR SHALL SHINE
REVIVE WITH E’ER ENDURING BLOOM
SAFE FROM DISEASE AND DECLINE.’










STONE [3] ‘WEEP NOT FOR ME MY HUSBAND DEAR
BECAUSE I AM GOING TO LEAVE YOU HERE
FOR I SHALL LAND ______ HAPPY SHORE
TO MEET WITH FRIENDS TO PART NO MORE.’
