|Abigail Blood, 1783, Pepperell, MA|
N.B. The Son of Man cometh at an hour when ye think not.
In memory of
Mrs. Abig'l. Blood, relict of Mr.
John Blood deceas'd, who died
very suddenly (probably of the
apoplexy) upon ye 7th day of
Novr. 1783 In the 61st
Year of her Age.
She was a person of a tender heart;
constant & conscientious in her
duty to GOD & man. ~
"Blessed is that servant whom, his
"Lord when he cometh
"shall find so doing.
"N.B." is striking me as funny — maybe it just sounds incongruously legalistic preceding a Bible verse.
