that was mortal
~ of ~
MARY  H.
Daughter of
Mary & Dr. Wm Savage
And wife of
Col. A. R. Wright,
Born Dec'r 28th, 1825
Married April 26th, 1843
Died June 23rd, 1854


A Christian Woman
is the highest best gift of God to earth
and here lies one of its
highest exemplifications! Christianity was with
her a sentiment deeply inwoven in all
her thoughts, feelings and affections.
Kind and benevolent, unexacting
and charitable, brilliant but
humble --- Vigorous in intellect,
sweet and lovely in person, meek and
gentle in disposition --- her life and
character have left their impress
indelibly fixed in the hearts of those whose
wise counsellor and devoted partner she was
throught all the vicissitudes of an eventful
though brief career.  Though married when
young, ardent and hopeful in the midday
splendor of youthful hopes and aspirations.
She entered upon her domestic duties
an energy and devotion which could feel
no decline:  and by the purity and vigor
of her own character she won from the
most slavish passions, him whose welfare
was her highest happiness, and
whose character was her own handiwork.
Her earthly missions
accomplished --- she laid down
her Cross, Took up her
Crown, and now
sweetly rests in the
bosom of her Savior.

If all the charities which life endear,
May claim affection, or demand a tear,
Then o'er Mary's untimely urn,
Domestic love may weep, and friendship mourn.
