Lieth the Remains of

ANN the Daughter of

Thomas and Ann Loake

who Died Sept 5th 1797

Aged 23 Years

The restless night I pin'd away,
And wasted all the tedious day,
My bones like David's all lay bare,
And in my face did gastly stare.
And thus my flesh consum'd apace
But But still my Soul increas'd in Grace.

Ann Loake was born about 1774. She was the daughter of Thomas Loake and Ann Cave.
