Monumental Inscription

Underneath this marble
are deposited the remains of
MARIA FARRE JONES
Eldest daughter of
JOHN FORSTER DRAKE JONES M.D.
and ANNE ISABEL his wife
who departed this life
on the 15th of April 1852
at an age when every early grace promising
talent virtuous and pious disposition
were attaining their maturity
Four days after her arrival in Barbados
whither she came to try the effect of her
native climate upon fast declining health
her pure spirit too good for Earth passed
into the presence of her God
This memorial is an affectionate but imperfect tribute of maternal love
