A native of Burke, Co, Ga
Born Sept 25, 1774

Kind angels watch this sleeping dust
Till Jesus comes to raise the just;
Then may she wake with sweet surprise
And in her Savior's image rise.
Farewell my husband, my life is past
My love for you through life did last;
Grieve not for me nor sorrow take
But love my children, for my sake.
- From Barbra Lanear's tombstone, Fort Pickens, Florida
