For a brief intro to the "101 Ways to Say 'Died'" series, click here.
On the 12th Day of May
1768, the House of Mr.
William Arms was Con-
sumed by Fire And his
Wife Mrs. Rebecca Arms
unhappily parish'd in the
Flames in the 70th Year
of her Age.
She was one who Feared God
& Lov'd the Redeemer, was a sin-
gular Example of Piety, who by
a devout walk was a Bright Or-
nament to the Christian Religion,
And her Death Great Gain.
