Catherine (French) Twitchell, Mendon Massachusetts
Old Cemetery, Mendon, Massachusetts
Catherine (French) Twitchell
Catherine (French ?) Twitchell, wife of Morris ?
to the memory of
Mrs. Catherine Twitchell
who died May 28th 1824
in the 50th year of her age.

In vain did virtue guide and friendship smiles
The weight of life hung heavy on her breast.
Her fainting spirit hung beneath its toil
And sighed, impatient for the hour of rest.
Farewell my much loved mother released from pain
Possessed the quit of thy wished abode
There sleep till he who died and rose again
Till joy shall wake thee with the trump of God.
