On a tombstone in Grafton, Vt.:
Gone home below.
Here lies Bernard Lightfoot who
was accidentally killed in his forty fifth year.
Erected by his grateful family.
A bird, a man, a loaded gun,
No bird, dead man, thy will be done.
At East Thompson, N. Y.:
Here lies one who never sacrificed
his reason to superstitious God, nor
ever believed that Jonah swallowed
Sacred to twins Charlie and Varlie
Sons of loving parents who died in infancy
