Birth: Jan. 12, 1817
Death: May 31, 1893

From Cemetery Records: 141 Sarah Howland Osgood--INTERRED 2 Jun 1893
*****
William's first wife died of tuberculosis in 1850. Osgood designed her memorial at Mount Auburn Cemetery in Cambridge, Massachusetts, where she was buried. Inspired by her poem "The Hand That Swept the Sounding Lyre", Osgood designed a 15-foot memorial: a white marble base topped by a bronze lyre crowned by a laurel wreath. Four of the five strings of the lyre were designed as cut (symbolizing his wife and three daughters, who were all dead by 1851). On his death, he asked his second wife (Sarah Howland) to cut the fifth string.
