To the purest affection
FOR A WIFE AND CHILD,
By the Husband and Father.
SAMUEL F. ALEXANDER
Born August 17th, 1813
Died April 23rd, 1853
In every relation of life, as Wife, Mother, Sister, friend, neighbor and humble, devout Christian, she was admired and beloved. Long she endured with Christian fortitude the tortures of a lingering and most painful disease and finally sunk to rest.
"Farewell, conflicting joys and fears,
Where light and shade alternate dwell;
How bright the unchanging morn appears,
Farewell, inconstant world, farewell."
Born Sep 3rd, 1846
Died Sep 10th, 1848
As a wave on the Ocean, as a bubble on the River, is gone, gone forever.
