Ursula Rawson
the beloved wife of
Wilson Rawson
who departed this life Nov 2nd 1795
Aged 35 years 5 months and 4 days
who has left a disconsolate husband
and six children to lament her great loss
She was a kind, a virtuous, and affectionate wife
A tender mother and excellent freind
Lived much beloved, and died much lamented
By all that knew her.

Sleep dearest love and be at rest
Till the last triumph shall send the skies
To waken all who sleep in dust
And bid the dead in Christ to rise

The sweet remembrance of the just
Shall flourish when they sleep in dust
