Days Gone By - stories from the past

TOMBSTONE TUESDAY – These two headstones seem to have a little anger

One Sexton, an Englishman, had two wives, and this significant inscription was put upon the tombstone of one by the bereaved husband:

Here lies my wife, Sallie Sexton;

She was a wife who never vexed one;

I can’t say that for her at the next stone.


The following is from a tombstone in New Jersey:

Reader, pass on! – don’t waste your time

On bad biography and bitter rhyme;

For what I am, this crumbling clay insures,

And what I was, is no affair of yours!
