"IN Memory of JOS COATES Esqr
who departed this transitory life
Novr 23rd 1793 aged 53
A good Husband, a good Father & a good Master

O Earth, to his remains indulgent be,
Who so much care and cost bestow'd on Thee
Here taught the Day to wear a thoughtfull gloom
And there enliven'd Natures Vernal bloom
The Barren Fields with Fruit Trees here be lin'd
And ev'ry limb be with Hop-binds twin'd
Propitious Earth lie lightly on his Head;
And ever on his Urn transparent glories Spread

Also in Sacred Memory of

MARY his wife
who died June 18th 1799
Aged 68
A good Wife, a good Mother and a Good Christian."

(RCHM, III, p 61-62; BoE, p 130).
