Sacred to the Memory of
Nancy Boyce, wife of Ker Boyce,
merchant of Charleston, S. C.
She was an example of all that is
lovely in the female character
discharging her duties. A child,
a wife, mother, and a member of Society.
A cheerfulness, zeal, and assiduity which
could only spring from a sincere heart
full of religeous obligation. She was a
Christian, diligent, devout, humble,
through life, triumphant in death. Her
bereft husband pray this humble tribute
to her memory.
