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 1925

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.

Sarah Barrass 23 Oct 2000
