Dearest Husband, thou hast left us,
     And thy loss we deeply feel;
Yet 'tis God that hath bereft us,
     He can all our sorrows heal.

Erected to the Memory of Mary Ethelinda, youngest daughter of James M. & Catherine W. Littlefield, who died April 10, 1847, aged 3 years.

And can it be that Ethelinda's gone?
Shall we no more that smiling face behold?
Are those sweet accents hushed upon her tongue?
Father, ‘thy will, not ours, be done.’

In Memory of Mrs. Rebecca, wife of Mr. Charles D. Wild, who died November 17, 1844, aged 34 years. Also their son, George W., who died Aug. 4, 1844, aged 4 months.

Peaceful be thy silent slumber,
     Peaceful in the grave, so low;
Thou no more wilt join our number,
     Thou no more our songs shall know.

Mary Ella, daughter of Edwin and Caroline M. Grant, died Aug. 25, 1855, aged 6 months.

Farewell, sweet babe, to us thou wert given
     A fair bud of promise, to cheer life's rude way;
But death has severed the tie which bound thee,
     And angels have borne thee in their bosoms away.

In Memory of James A. Fisk, son of J. W. and Mary Fisk, who died Aug. 9, 1847, aged 1 yr. 9 mos. & 15 ds.
