JEWELL



WILL YOU MEET ME THERE?
LIMA M.
WIFE OF
ELD _______

(NOTE: This stone is now cracked here. By examining the 1850 U.S. Census, Dickinson, Franklin County, New York, page 119, one can reasonably assume that she was the wife of Eldred JEWELL.)
DIED
June 7, 1861
AE 19 y. 8 m. & 21 d.
My beloved Lima sleeps in Jesus. But I shall
see her again.
Oh think of me as you pass by
As you are now so once was I
As I am now so you shall be
Prepare in life to follow me.
