SAMUEL F. ALEXANDER

MRS. MAHULDA 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."


SAM'L F. ALEXANDER
Born Sep 3rd, 1846
Died Sep 10th, 1848

As a wave on the Ocean, as a bubble on the River, is gone, gone forever.
