ELIZABETH P.

wife of CHAs. N. SHEPARD

& dau. Of

Col. Daniel Chase

DIED

Sept. 20, 1854.

AE. 29 yrs. 9 days.

She’s gone no more to greet you here

Husband, brothers, and sisters dear

But in that far off better land

She waits to give the welcome hand.

The rounded-top white marble tablet of Elizabeth Shepard’s epitaph in the Tomb Cemetery in Holden, Maine, is full of warm sentimentality for her family—though she is gone, she waits on the other side with her hands open to welcome them.
