Mary Willey

Memorial Number: 27*

A memorial recording of this headstone was taken in July 2017.  Portions of the incised inscription were clear but worn, and other areas were too weathered to be legible.  The inscription that was distinguishable read:  

TO
THE MEMORY OF
MARY THE BELOVED WIFE OF
THOMAS WILLEY
SHOEMAKER
OF THIS PARISH
WHO DEPARTED THIS LIFE
_ _ JANUARY 183_
AGED 31 YEARS
ALSO OF CHARLES
THEIR SON WHO DIED
_ _ OCT 1837
AGED 3 YEARS

This memorial stone was also recorded in 1984 and forms part of an archive at the Devon Record Office.  The memorial record from 1984 records the inscription as follows:

SACRED
