Halloway Fish’s Epitaph

Standard

In memory of Rev. H. Halloway Fish
who died
Sept. 1, 1824
Age. 62
He was graduated from Dartmouth College 1790
Ordained in Marlboro
Sept. 26, 1793
And thirty yrs. the beloved pastor of the church and society

He died praying for his people.
This graveyard marks the place of lowly sleep
And living friends enter here to weep.

I think finding his grave will have to be on my agenda for my next NH visit.
