Tall gothic stone with trefoil passion flower motif incised above the MI on the west face

to the memory of
wife of
who died July 2nd 1874
aged 67 years
Come on, my partner in distress,
What keeps thee back from home?
Now I have lain me down to rest,
Why shouldst thou further roam!
Hast thou not ever been my guide
Throughout lifes wearying scene?
Then come and lay thee by my side,
And all will be serene!
For Blessed are the peaceful dead
Who in the Lord do die;
Their works, the Holy Spirit said,
Shall follow them on high.
