Anna Mason


SACRED [Here follows a four line verse not enough of which could be deciphered to bring together sensible words.]
THIS TABLET is placed here by Charles Mason in acknowledgement of gratitude for the affectionate love of his kind and devoted wife ANNA TAYLOE MASON who died the 15th of May 1831. Aged 23 years leaving a character distinguished for all the virtues which exalt and adorn her so. She was the only surviving child of Tayloe and Anna Braxton of Richmond, Va. Both of whom died at an early age leaving in charge of their friends this pledge of their affection and when this dear object of *** and fond devotion had just attained the endearing affection of parent the blighting hand of death made her husband a widower and her infant an orphan.”
[*** undecipherable.]
