Their ever Affectionate and afflicted Daughter,
caused this little Stone to be Erected as a testimony of
her Heartfelt gratitude to the Memory of the best of

While o'er the Grave of Parents truly dear,
A Lamenting Child drops the filial tear;
A stone, a verse, Oh honoured Pair receive,
As the last tribute gratitude can give
To such dear Saints I'll bid a kind adieu,
And hope to share a blissful Heaven with you.
