Son of James
& Catherine Ryan,
died Feb. 20, 1881,
aged 6 yrs. 7 mo's.
May his soul rest in peace. Amen.
And art thou gone, sweet little one,
As thy brief course so quickly run,
But oh, how sad the father's heart.
When the summons came with thee to part
[Bereft] of all his heart held dear,
He's left a lonely mourner here.
