**Inscription from the tombstone of Sarah Dorsey: "Tried in the furnace of affliction.  She trusted Christ and was purified as gold.  Patiently waiting she heard the summons and sweetly 'fell on sleep.'  'So to the grave- no!  Take thy seat above.  Be thy pure spirit present with the Lord, where thou for faith and hope hast perfect love and open vision for the written word.'"

**Inscription from the tombstone of Silvey Dorsey: "We miss thee from our home Mother We miss thee from our place  A shadow over our life is cast  We miss the sunshine of thy grace  We miss thy kind and loving voice thy fond and earnest care  Our home is dark without you Mother we miss thee everywhere"
