Inscription

"Marcy Ann daughter of Israel & Elizabeth Adams departed this life October 2, 1840, aged 3 y. 3 m. & 3 d. As vernal flowers that scent the morn, But wither in the rising day, Thus lovely was this infant's dawn, Thus swiftly fled her life away"
(poem is from a hymn sung at infant funerals titled "The Stone Rolled From the Tomb":
As vernal flowers that scent the morn, But wither in the rising day, Thus lovely was this infant's dawn, Thus swiftly fled her life away
He died before his infant soul Had ever burnt with wrong desires - Had ever spurned at heaven's control, Or ever quenched its sacred fires.
He died to sin, he died to care; But for a moment felt the rod; Then rising on the viewless air, Spread his light wings, and soared to God.
This blessed theme now cheers my voice; The grave is not the loved one's prison; The ‘stone' that covered half my joys Is ‘rolled away', and lo! ‘He's risen.'

Gravesite Details daughter of Isreal & Elizabeth Adams; birth calculated ,aged 3yrs. 3mon. 3days
