Epitaph: A Siner saved by grace

Steps away from the graves of his wife and daughter is the grave of James Roney (b. 1797, d. 1840), marked by a simple gravestone with a direct epitaph.

Fragments: Amy Hannah Roney

The top of the stone is broken off, leaving us to wonder (perhaps not for long) who shares a gravestone in Davis Cemetery with Amy Hannah Roney (d. 1840).


41 years. 7 m. & 15 d.
Also
Amy Hannah Infant
Daughter of James &
Rachael Roney died
January 10th 1840 aged
5 m & 21 d

A 1927 record of the burials in Davis Cemetery includes Rachael Roney, with a transcription that suggests Amy Hannah is buried with her mother, Rachael:

Rachael Roney wife of James died Dec. 14, 1839 41 yrs.

The epitaph on the shared gravestone is taken from the Book of Revelation.

And i heard a noise from heaven saying
unto me Write blessed are the dead
Which die in the Lord from henceforth
yea saith the Spirit that they may rest
from their labors and their works do
follow them   [Rev. XIV. 13]
