Phebe Cook
wife of
Ephraim Stiles
Died Dec. 20, 1809.
Aged 70 years.
Rest, Mother rest, thy loveing heart,
Shall never throb with sorrow more;
Thy wounded Spirit now doth part.
From every cross which once it bore.

We do not wish thee back to Earth,
And yet we cannot help but mourn
We never fathomed half thy worth,
Till now, dear Mother thou art gone.6


Phebe married Ephraim Stiles, son of Moses Stiles and Abigail (…).1,3
