To the Sacred memory of My dear husband and two sons who were lost at sea, on The schooner "P. T. Harris", During the Great War June 1916. THOMAS HARRIS, Master Mariner, Aged 41 years. THOMAS LEONARD, Aged 16 years. WILLIAM, Aged 14 years. We cannor bend beside their grave For they sleep in the secret sea And not one gentle whispering grave, Will tell the place to me: But though unseen by human eye, Though mortals known it not, Their father knoweth where they lie And angels guard their spot. Also of SARAH ELIZABETH Beloved wife and mother of the above, ..... etc
