South Reading grave stones:
Here lyes the body of Mrs. Hannah Bacheler, consort of Mr. Nathaniel Bacheller, who departed this life Oct. 7, 1754, in the 73rd year of her age. Having lived in the married state with her husband above 50 years. The memory of the just is blessed.
Here lyes the body of Mr. Nathaniel Bacheler
who dyed May 18, 1763, in the 89th year of his age.
His life the true religion did adorne,
His death caus'd many aching hearts to mourn;
Not children only and grand children dear,
But neighbors too could not withhold a tear--
To who obliging conduct, they confess,
They owe no small degree of happiness.
Steadfast in faith, he ran that Christian race,
Still waiting for the rich rewards of grace,
Of which the soul partakes above the skies,
Until the dust to eternal glory rise.
