Tombstone Tuesday ~ Mariah (Eaton) Parker, d. 1826, Reading, Massachusetts

This tombstone was photographed at Laurel Hill Cemetery in Reading, Massachusetts

Memory of
~ Consort of Mr.
Gould Parker ~ 
who died July 10, 1826,
in the 22, year of her age.
Faith led her gently downward to the tomb,
While fix'd on heav'n her meek, yet steady eye
Pierc'd the thick shade that deepen'd
round its gloom,
And caught a gleam of glory from 
on high.

Gould Parker, son of Colonel Nathan Parker and Lydia Stearns, was born in 1804.  He married Mariah Eaton on 16 December 1824, just a year and a half before she died of consumption.  Gould Parker remarried second to Mary Flint in 1829. 

Mariah, baptized in Reading on 25 November 1804 was the daughter of Timothy Eaton and Lydia Bachelor, who were married in Reading on 16 June 1791.
