Note:  Inscription on Ellen R. Chancellor's gravestone:
        Like Spring's first flowers she passed away,
        Mid innocence and bloom,

        Far, far, beyond the tome.
Note:  Inscription on Matilda A. Chancellor's gravestone:
        Too gifted, good and beautiful
        For this cold world of ours
        She bade its scenes a last adieu
        To dwell in Edne's (Eden's?) bowers.
