This poor woman must have had a difficult marriage. . .
Here lies the body of Bridget Applewhaite
Once Bridget Nelson.
After the fatigues of a married life,
Borne by her with incredible patience
For four years and three quarters, bating three weeks,
And after the enjoyment of the glorious freedom
Of an easy and unblemished widowhood
For four years and upwards,
She resolved to run the risk of a second marriage,
But death forbade the banns.
Here lies the Body of Jane Cathew,
Born at St. Colomb, died at St. Ewe;
Children she had five,
Three are dead and two alive;
Those that are dead choosing rather
To die with their mother than live with their father
