TOMBSTONE TUESDAY: If you want a great epitaph, it is good to have a name that you can rhyme

On Thomas Woodcock:

Here lie the remains of Thomas Woodhen,

The most amiable of husbands and excellent of men,

N. B. His real name was Woodcock, but it

Wouldn’t come in rhyme. – His widow.

On Dr. Walker, author of “English Particles”:

Here lie Walker’s particles.



In New Jersey:


Died of thin shoes, April 17th 1839, aged 19 years


Against his will

Here lies George Hill

Who from a cliff

Fell down quite stiff

When it happen’d is not known

Therefore not mentioned on this stone.
