An Update on Nellie's Epitaph

Yesterday I shared with you a tombstone and epitaph placed in Oak Hill Cemetery for Nellie B. Jackson. I've since learned the phrase "To live in hearts we leave behind is not to die" is a quote from Thomas Campbell's poem Hallowed Ground.

It is quite a long poem; I'm not going to post it here. (I already have one scheduled for you tomorrow.) I did include Hallowed Ground in my new Southern Epitaphs blog / database, if you're interested and would like to read it there --> To Live in Hearts We Leave Behind...
