South Park Street Burial Ground

Sacred to the Memory of

Mrs. Phoebe Jackson,

Late wife of Lieut. Edward Rowland Jackson

Who died the 20th November 1785, aged 24 years.

And ye who now with pensive thoughts peruse

The sad effusions of a mournful muse

Yet mark though beauty gives thee every grace

And youth’s warm blood still flushes in your face

Perhaps o’er you death holds his iron rod,

And unprepar’d demands thee from thy God.

The remains of her Father-in-law

Doctor Rowland Jackson,

are deposited  near this place.

I believe that Phoebe was née TUTTING.

See Jacksons of Ahenesk.
