|Virginia Bergey||RE: Ann Jenkins Headstone photo|
And all along I thought I was photographing for a Morris Evans I know here who is much older than you. He and I are affiliated with Gywnedd Friends Meeting where there are also many Jenkins and Evans. In fact Howard Jenkins wrote the History of Gwynedd available at Google Books.

Marker transcription taken from Lydia Evans tombstone
"Corruption, earth and worms
Shall but refine this flesh,
Till my triumphant spirit comes
To put it on afresh.
God my Redeemer lives,
And often from the skies,
Looks down and watches all my dust
Till he shall bid it to rise."
This can be found on pg 44 of
Genealogy of Evans, Nivin and Allied Families
by Septimus E Niven
Also in Evans, Whitting, Davis
by the same author
If you post this on Lydia's memorial page, please refer to the book.
Note, the name Lydia Evans appears often, look at the London Tract Baptist Cem for 2 others.

Go to this posting I just made and follow the family links to other Evans burials in the churchyard.

With your name being the same a Lydia's maiden name, (EVANS) do you know if this is the Lydia (d/o Peter & Rachel) who m. John Roberts?
If so I have a transcription of the reading on her marker.
