The Delta Herald, Mar 13, 1885 p. 3

Mrs. S. Augusta Bay, wife of Hugh T. Bay, and daughter of the late N. Rigby Stokes, who died at her residence near Prospect, Md., Feb 13th, 1885, aged 33 years and 4 months.

While fever and pain were raging high,
And anxious friends were watching nigh,
The “Angel death” came flitting by
And laid his seal upon her brow.

All along the path of life,
She meekly bore a sister’s part;
True and loving as a wife;
A comfort to her mother’s heart.

Her joys in life she sought to share;
To gratify her friends in need;
And by her kind and gentle care,
She gained full many a friend indeed.

But God has said her work is done;
Now she’ll sing redeeming love;
For God has promised again to come
And gather his children home above.
Brother J.
