wife of
Capt WILLIAM HOLMES 3d Mariner
and daughter to
she was killed instantaneously
in a Thunder storm by the
Electrich fluid of lightning on
the 6th of July 1830,
aged 35 years and 26 days.

She was an affectionate Wife, a
dutiful Daughter, a happy Mother,
a kind and sincere friend. Alas
sweet Blossom short was the period
that thy enlivening virtues
Contributed to the Happiness of
those Connections: But oh how long
have they to mourn the loss of so
much worth and Excellence.

Fare well dear Wife untill that day more blest
When if deserving I with thee shall rest,
With thee shall rise with thee shall live above,
In worlds of endless bliss and boundless love.
