Young people, as you pass by
(Illegible) as you are now so once was I
As I am now so you must be
Prepare for death and follow me

there is one step between me and death

Phebe Baragar, wife of Jonathan D. Wood, died Nov. 27, 1843, aged 40 years and 13 days

So (illegible) the world's uncertain span
No zeal for God nor love for man
Gives mortal monuments a date
Beyond the powers of time and Cate

Jonathan D. Wood, died Aug. 19, 1855, aged 54 years, 2 months, 8 days


NOTE: Last quote is probably, "So fleets the world's uncertain span..."
