Margaret Campbell

[No Likeness Exists]


In
Memory Of
Margaret Campbell
wife of
Alexander Campbell
who was born January 29, 1791
and died October 27, A.D. 1827
aged, 36 years, 9 months, and
23 days
She was in truth a good wife, a tender
mother, a faithful and affectionate friend,
She lived the life of a Christian, and died
Full in the hope of a blessed resurrection
unto Eternal life.
The Last Lines She Had Sung Declared Her
Views And Feeling In The Prospect Of Death
and The Grave.
No Terror The Prespect Begets,
I Am Not Mortality's Slave;
The Sunbeam Of Life As It Sets,
Paints A Rainbo Of Peace On The Grave.
