From the tombstone of Deacon John Lord:
      He was a professor of religion about 70 years.  His eulogy is
   already written on the hearts and memories of all those who
   witnessed his devotion to the calling he loved and heeded his pious
   admonitions.

From the tombstone of Mrs. Sarah Lord:
      She was benevolent and sincere, her whole heart was formed on
   principles of generosity and Christian charity.  Like her Great
   Master, she delighted in doing good, all which received lustre from
   strong intellectual powers and on acute understanding.  Her life and
   death were lasting testimonies of the sincerity of the religion she
   early embraced.
