TOMBSTONE TUESDAY: The husbands had the last word

These epitaphs on tombstones reveal that the husband must have died last since he had the last word.

  • Within this grave do lie
  • Back to back my wife and I.
  • When the last trump the air shall fill,
  • If she gets up I’ll just lie still.

And the second epitaph

  • This is to the memory of Ellen Hill,
  • A woman who would always have her will,
  • She snubbed her husband, but she made good bread,
  • Yet on the whole he’s rather glad she’s glad.
  • She whipped her children and she drank her gin,
  • Whipped virtue out and whipped the devil in.
  • May all such women go to some great fold
  • Where they through all eternity may scold.
