Tis religion, that can give, sweetest pleasure, while i live. Tis religion, must supply solid comfort, when I die.
When I visited this cemetery a year ago, I couldn’t read her age on the weathered stone but it must have been 22.Next to Mary Ann their daughter Rebecca is buried. The inscription on her stone reads:
In Memory of Rebecca daughter of M.A. & Mary Ann Zorns, Who Died May 27th 1843:Aged 1 year & 2 mo
Short, was her life, Eternal, isher rest. Who would not die, To be forever blest.
I am a descendant of David Storer by his first wife, Ruth Hutton.My grandmother Storer grew up on Pond Run.
