        OGDEN, Mary
Buried in Newark, New Jersey

    Mary the wife of Isaac Ogden, esq. here rested from the hurry of life, on
    the 15 of March 1772, aged 26 years. Could the softness and elegance which
    adorned, could the piety and benevolence, which endeared human nature, could
    tenderest friendship or purest love disarm the king of terrors, she had not died.

    When every pain and every joy is o'er,
    When fortune, age, disease, can wound no more;
    Virtues like hers, with radiant lustre glow,
    An breathe refulgent through the clouds of wo;
    Kind spirit sooth the pangs of parting breath,
    And strew with softest down the bed of death.
