Phoebe Cary
Birth: Sep. 4, 1824

Ohio, USA
Death: Jul. 31, 1871
Newport County

Poet. Her first poem was published in 1838 in a newspaper when she was just 14. She had success in Scribner's Monthly, Galaxy, and Putnam's Monthly. She edited "Hymns for All Christians" (1869), and published two books of poetry, "Poems and Parodies" (1854), and "Poems of Faith, Hope, and Love" (1868). Her inspirational lyrics appeared in many church hymnals, on Sunday School cards, and in household scrapbooks. The well loved, "Nearer Home," was often sung at funerals, including her own. It is better known by its first phrase, "One Sweetly Solemn Thought." (bio by: Graveaddiction)
