Abigal Robison Garvey

GARVEY. -- Abigal Robison Garvey, was born in Wayne county, Ohio, Dec. 20th, 1818, and died April 17th, 1881, aged 62 years, 3 months and 28 days.

In the year 1833 she moved with her parents to Indiana. In 1840 she united with the Baptist church in Valparaiso. In 1853 she was married to Duncan Garvey. The fruit of this union was 5 children, 2 sons and 3 daughters. She always lived strong in the faith which she professed, and on her death bed she told her friends she was ready and willing to die, for she was going to rest.

Yes, thou'rt gone, our mother dear,
No more thy form we'll greet;
Thy gentle voice no longer hear;
No more on earth we'll meet.

To heaven thou'rt gone; thou could'st not stay.
The trials of life no longer bear;
O' may we labor, watch and pray,
That we may meet thee there.

Farewell, dear mother, in that bright home,
That house not made with hands,
We hope to meet and with thee roam
O'er the eternal strands.

R. J. A.
