"In memory of Sherman Boardman, Esq. who died July 19, 1814 aged 86 years. And of Sarah his wife who died Oct. 17, 1818 aged 88 years"

"Behold fond man!
See here thy pictured life
pass some few years;
Thy flowering Spring, thy summers
ardent strength
Thy sober autumn fading
into age
And pale concluding Winter
comes at last
And shuts the scene."
