info from Inkpen Churchyard
"I went to the church yard in
Inkpen to have a look to see who I could find, I
found Alice's first but you
could only just make out her name and the date, the
rest had been worn away, I could however just make
out the verse on Amos's headstone.
While in this world I did remain
My later days were grief and pain
Until the Lord he thought it best
To take me to a place of rest.
I think that this sad inscription refers to the fact
that Amos had a stroke 12 years
before he died, and Jane had to
look after him. but as Becky said there is no mention
of Jane being buried with him.
the inscription on the bottom of Mary
1924 and Amos
A bitter our a shock severe
To part with one we love so dear
Our love is great will no complain
But trust in Christ to meet again
Gone but not forgotten.
