Cinderella C.
Wife of Dr. C. P. Heartwell
Born Aug 20, 1832
Died Aug 4, 1866

Thou is gone, but we will not deplore thee,
Whose God was thy ransom, thy guardian and guide
He gave thee, He took thee and He will restore thee,
And death has no sting, for the Saviour has died.


It may be truly said of her, that in all the relations
of life she deserved the highest commendation.  A
faithful wife, a fond mother, a generous friend, a
devoted CHRISTIAN.
She was ever held in the highest esteem by a large
circle of kindred and FRIENDS.
