1792 – 1857

Isiah Posey who departed this life on Dec 5th, 1857
In the 65 year of his age – far from affliction toil
Care thy happy soul hath fled though I have seen the
form depart (former) from by widowed eye. I hold
thee in mine inmost heart. Those, there at last thou
canst not die. Thy sheltering arm I leaned upon, thy
gentle voice that calmed my fears are gone and not
remains for me but sorrow loneliness and tears.
Farewell on Earth. Heaven.
(now this stone is almost unreadable)

Susan, wife of Isiah Posey who departed this life on
December 25, 1843. Aged 29 years.

Watson grave of Greenwood Farm, Pisgah. 300 yards
North West of the intersection of Poorhouse Road and
Ripley Road.

Sacred to the memory of Jane Watson, wife of Warren
D. Watson who was born in Charles County, Maryland
the xxx day of February, Anno Domini 1820 and xxxxx
died in Westmoreland County, Virginia the 10th day
of August 1840 aged 20 years.
(she was Ann Perry’s sister)

Died at her home in Washington, D.C., Alice, beloved
wife of Roderick D. Watson, Jr., and daughter of
William and Eleanor Dows of Rosemary Lawn, Charles
County. The deceased has lived in Washington since
her marriage in 1896, and while there won the hearts
of all who knew her, and a host of friends grieve at
her loss.

The shadows of sadness hung like a pall on the home
of Roderick D. Watson, Jr. of Washington, November
23, day before Thanksgiving Day. When the gentle
spirit of his beloved wife was summoned to bid
farewell to all things earthly and be wafted to the
home beyond where there shall be no more pains or
partings. There to be numbered among the innumerable throng.
Gently and peaceably surrounded by relatives and friends;
hands clasp in those of the grieving husband, with the
sacred elements of the Lord Supper just received, and
the name of her God on her lips, the silver chord was
broken. Sad yet beautiful, and just as her eyes were
closing the attendant clergyman standing by her bedside
received her little infant girl, as a member of the church,
by Baptism Beautiful, in that a thanks offering was
received into the church militant, just as one was accepted
into the church triumphant. There to be with Jesus. There
to see Him as He is. There to be like him. Do not grieve
her husband, parents, brothers and sisters for she is in
that happy land waiting for you to meet her there. We know
that “God is Love” and “His grace is sufficient for us”,
he tell us to cast our care upon Him, and he will watch
over us, and the two motherless babies, if we have faith
and trust in Him.
