by whom he had issue 7 sons and 3 daughters;
who dyed April 30th, 1671 and in the 63rd

My only wife, that in her life
Lived forty years with me,
Lyes now in rest, for ever blest
With immortality.

My dear is gone - left me alone
For Christ to do and dye,
Who dyed for me, and dyed to be
My Saviour-God Most High."2
