In Memory of
Elizabeth Wife of Joseph *Bird
and Daughter of Thomas
and Elizabeth Cottrill Gent,
who departed this Life
the 12th Day of October 1784
Aged 39 Years.
Husband and friends pray Cast an Eye
Upon this grave where I do lie
My time was short my days are past
I lov'd you whilst my life did last
Think on my child don't it forsake
And Allways on it pity take.
[ELIZABETH *BYRD/ R1/ B.22.10.1784]
