Hello List -
This evening I luckily obtained an ancient cardboard box containing old
photos, and letters from my great grandmother's family in Devon - photos
and items I thought were long gone including a A.Griffiths photo of my gg
grandfather in Honiton.
Included in these treasures are "In Memoriam" black-edged cards and two
refer to friends of the family - I'm thinking the Baker may be one of
Margaret in Honiton's - and the other?
Here is a transcript of what they say:
"In Affectionate Remembrance of
Who died Saturday, May the 2nd, 1885,
Aged 75 Years.
the living know that they shall die
[and the opposite left hand side of the card says: What man is he that
liveth and shall not see death?
Thou hast appointed his boundary that he cannot pass
The small and great are there and the servant is free from his master."]
"In Loving Memory of
Who departed this life, June 29th, 1884,
Aged 66 years.
[opposite left hand side of card says: Absent from earth and with the Lord,
A change so wondrous great
One moment on the Pilgrim's road,
The next at Jesu's feet."]
I hope this is helpful to someone! Happy Olympics!
