To the memory of
Miss HANNAH TYLER,
Ebenezer & Ann Tyler.
She died Sept. 20, 1824,
aged 74 years, 2 months
and 9 days.
If you have tears for one whose mind
felt for every human woe;
and whose alms as well as prayers
for one whose nature was formed for friendship
and in whose soul dwelt at home,
FAITH, HOPE and CHARITY;
you may freely shed them over this
How do alms ascend? Isn't the point to keep them here on earth for the relief of the poor?
Hannah Tyler, Providence, RI, 1824
Is that the carver's name at the bottom? I can't quite make it out.
Yes, it's from the Tingley brothers' shop.
