Notes

Inscription:
In memory of
Fanny dau. of
John & Anna Bocott
who died
Oct. 22, 1820
Aged 18 years
As fades the flower before the blast
As sapling by the wind up cast
As early spring that promised fair
By chilling gust and blighting air
So youth and beauty shall beneath
The cold benumbing hand of death
Oh! what a promise late was here
And all that’s left us now’s a tear
