Samuel Miller Brown, Warren, RI - 1794

Sacred to the Memory of Capt.
who departed this Life, (at
Pawtucket, on his way
home from Boston, where
he had just arrived from Sea)
Sept. 9th AD 1794, in the 44th
Year of his Age.

In health I left my native home,
Not thinking this to be my Doom,
I past the dangers of the Sea,
In hopes to meet my Family,
But Death has call’d I must obey
Before I all of them could see.

North  Burial Ground, Warren, Rhode Island
