Memory of ANN
the Daughter of
who departed this Life
July [??] 179[4/5] in the
21st Year of her Age

When blooming Youth is snatched away
By Death's resistless Hand,
Our Hearts the mournful tribute pay
Which Pity must demand.

Ann is the third known child of Lewis Dawkins and Alice Wells.

It is difficult to see whether the year of death is 1794 or 1795 as the last figure has been altered, but the Bishop's Transcript of burials shows a burial for Ann Dawkins on 3rd July 1794.
