Alfo Here lyes ye Body of
Hannah Emmons Wife to Thos.
Emmons Who Died Octobr. 31
17[29 in ye 21st Year] of her Age

Bit of a bummer for Hannah to have died before her husband only to receive second billing on their gravestone and to be only named once while her husband is named twice in full! However, fantastic handwriting and fierce winged skulls.
