pitaph
Sacred to the memory
of
Mrs. ELEANOR DOUGLASS SCOTT
the amiable and lamented consort of
RICHARD MARSHALL SCOTT
of
Bush Hill
who departed this life in the 23d year of her age
at Bush Hill
on the 26th day of January 1830
having an infant son 5 months old
called by his fathers name
She expired in the arms of her husband.
Her remains
dear and sacred to him,
by his particular desire
were translated to this spot,
the family burying ground
and interred the 28th day of January 1830.
Let Eleanor's urn, her virtues in a train
In sympathetic grief attend her bier,
While friendship, love and charity remain
In silent anguish, type of sad despair.
