Elizabeth Hite tombstone

Aged 91 Years & 9 Mos

     One precious life from us has gone
One ______ voice is stilled
One place is vacant in our home
Which never can be filled

[The epitaph comes from a transcription of the cemetery done by Dorothy V. Masters in 1967, when the stone was more complete and readable.]
