INTERESTING EPITAPHS FROM CEMETERIES
IN MISSISQUOI

From the Frelighsburg Cemetery,

Erected to the memory of
     MR. ELIJAH KEMP
one of the first settlers of this seigniory who died on seventh day of December, 1834 at the advanced age of seventy-two years ten months and ten days.
In life he was an example of industry,
A tender husband and affectionate father
A faithful friend, and when the hour came
He died in the hope of a blessed immortality,
Leaving and aged widow and a large circle of relatives
And friends to lament his loss.
     “Blessed are the dead that die in the Lord.”

MHS #6 1960
