Sarah Danforth - Swan Point

Mrs. Sarah Danforth
wife of Mr. Job Danforth
died March 5, 1811
aged 58 years 6 months

What woman ought to be, she was in the Relations
of Wife - Mother - Daughter - Sister - Neighbor

Patient under affliction, resigned to the will of
GOD, and with a Serenity disarming Disease
of Pain, she returned her spirit into
the Hands of her MAKER.

The Bond of Love, which united her and her
Bereaved Husband for more than 41 years, are
burst asunder, but the Consolation for him
and his children and her aged Parent is
that the Christian Spirit and Practice
which she exemplified in her life
