TF3488 : Snatched away

taken 9 years ago, near to Keddington, Lincolnshire, Great Britain

Snatched away
Snatched away
Headstone in St.Margaret's churchyard with a tragic tale ....

Two afflicted parents erect this stone
to commemorate the loss of three children
Who in their infancy were snatched away
by a cruel and rapid fever
Mary Clarke aged 6 years, Feb.10th 1804
Richard aged 10, Feb 18th 1804
and Thomas aged 2, the same day

When fleeting time shall cease to plow
When clos'd these passing hours
What crowds will wish their stay below
Had been as short as ours

Also John an infant
who died Feb 7th 1806
