Anne and Christopher Birckhead
Anne and Christopher
They are believed to be the oldest
dated tombstones in Maryland
This registers for her bones,
her fame is more perpetual than these stones
and still her virtues, though her life be gone,
shall live when earthly monuments are none.
Who, reading this, can choose but drop a tear
for such a wife and such a mother dear,
She ran her race and now is laid to rest,
and allaleguis sings among the blest.
