History, grad school, and gravestones!
Well, that certainly shows us the Puritan age is over.Emily Dickinson's epitaph (1886, outside your time frame) is famously, "Called Back."
Oooh! Not sure what to think of how this stone reads: "NANCY left us Feb. 19, 1858,I am happy."Makes me wonder who was happy? Nancy or the ones left behind. Perhaps thats what compelled you to share it. Poor Nancy, pehaps?
