I've seen some interesting grave markers in my time but this one caused a double-take ... Talk about some very colorful language in the year 1817. I wonder if Abigail Bradly wrote this eulogy herself? ... Creepy!

Well thats cheered me up no end Kevin as I sit here and mourn my aching limbs from one afternoon of skiing and realize that I am just a tomb bound mortal!

However all joking aside, thanks for the transcription, it is well worth recording here and in GE.

Nice one!

Jethro, Sorry for the downer! There are some other interesting markers in this cemetery but this one takes the cake!

Bruce, hahaha - I hear that! I can hear Jimmy now, "...and if you don't believe me, jut ask sister Bradly here...".

Thanks to you both for the comments!

We might be walking onwards to the tomb, but at least we leave behind our memories and our views of this world that we have so captured :-)

She lived to a ripe old age (69 years) for 1817! Best wished to all and CHEER UP! from IRELAND, Alan.

Alan L., Yes, she certainly did! I hadn't considered that but you're exactly right!

Greetings from North Carolina, USA -
