"All drowned in/Mill River Flood/May 16 1874/One moment, the anguish, the terror /The next all suffering was o'er/In the "watery chariot" taken/To the beautiful evergreen shore/The father, the mother, dear sisters/A household in heaven complete/All there the circle unbroken/The home that on earth was so sweet."
