  • Notes 
    • 'A loving Husband to His Wife A tender Parent two Greatly lemented was a death By frinds and kindred two.
      The Lord was pleas'd to Call him Home And by a Suding Blow Twas by a falling of A Tree To his long home did Go.
      And now He slumbers in the dust and will not rise before The Lord the Judge desceds from Heaven And time shall be no more.
      Blessed are they that die in ye Lord they Rest from labours & their works do follow them.
