A touching memorial from Samuel and Hannah’s children, the poem at the bottom of the stone reads:

“They bravely crossed the ocean wide
And here they slumber side by side
This monumental marble stands.
Loves tribute from their childrens hands
When all the storms of life have passed
May we all meet in Heaven at last.”

Several of those children were old enough to remember the journey, and no doubt felt the sacrifice that Samuel and Hannah made in setting out to an unknown land and destiny.

You can read a few details of their journey as Mormon Pioneers on my main site.
