Inscription

"Alice"
"Our joy for 8 yrs. & 7 mos."
"God took her Sept. 12, 1860"
"Farewell sweet child, our angel girl,
Thy Father's pride, thy Mother's pearl.
A spirit pure on Heaven's bright shore
Thou art not lost but gone before"

_____________________
(back of stone)
"Yes, again we hope to meet thee,
When the day of life is fled.
Then in heaven with joy to greet thee,
Where no farewell tear is shed."


Gravesite Details note: epitaph on back is from a hymn written by Samuel Francis Smith (who also wrote "My country, 'tis of thee"). The hymn this is an excerpt of is called "The Departed".
