Final Resting Place
Margaret Linsey Fletcher Prowell
August 5, 1786 -- September 12, 1848

As you lie beneath this tree
For one hundred and sixty four years
We wonder what kind of life you lived
And probably shed many a tear

I wonder how old you were
As you came in Kentucky from Virginia
Your family probably traveled by wagon
In Adair County you started a new beginning

Time had to be hard way back then
As you struggled a family to raise
You had to be a mother so loved
And received lots of praise

Margaret you must have been so loved
For this final resting place you were given
Who carved you name on this stone
That for so long has covered your grave

God must have planted this tree
That protects your final place of rest
He knew your family would move away
And leave behind the one they loved best

One daughter stayed behind too
A William Leach she had married
If only she had lived a little longer
My great grandmother a name she would have carried
