Charles and Julia Akerman

Lucy Evelina wife of Charles Akerman, Feb. 21, 1874, the dawning of her 58th birthday, "passed through glory's morning gate and walked in paradise"
For weary hands, the earth work done, 
For tired feet, the earth race run, 
Beyond, beyond, the setting sun, 
Land where the spirit grows.
