Memento mori

IN Memory of Mr:
Ephraim Butterfield

Butterfield and Mrs Anna
his wife who departed
this Life June 7th: 1777 Aged

The Sin of Adam has laid me lo
For Sin hath wrought an Overthrow
From dust I came to dust Im come
And now the dusts become my home
When Christ comes down with saints to reign
Then dust me no more shall detain
