In loving memory of
Charlotte Jane,
Beloved wife of
William Clauson-Thue
Who entered into rest
January 9th 1908

I heard the voice of Jesus say,
"Come unto me and rest;
Lay down, thou weary one, lay down thy head upon my breast"
I came to Jesus as I was,
Weary and worn and sad;
Found in Him a resting place,
And he has made me glad.

William Clauson-Thue
Husband of the above.
Who entered into rest
February 15th 1907. Aged 73

Here lie the caskets
But the jewels are gone
Guarded by angels
To the Almighty's throne
To live forever
With the three in one.

Her children rise up and call her blessed.

He was the pioneer of telegraphic coding
Author of the A.B.C Code and other studies.
