Notes To The Memory of Elizabeth wife of James OPPEY of the Parish of Wendron who departed this life December 9 1834 aged 49 years. A loving wife so full of care. A tender mother lying here. My Lord hath blotted out my crime. And I am now removed from time. Where I find no months or years. Or pain to fill my eyes with tears. Also Lavinnia and Matilda twin daughters of the above who died in the first year of their age 1818. We were twins and every morrow. Shar’d alike that gave us breath. We were twins in sin and sorrow. Hapless life and sudden death. We were twins in desolation. O may God our frailties hide! And make us twins in His salvation. Through our Saviour crucified. Also of the above named James OPPEY who died April 8 1860 aged 78 years.
