      In Memory/ of/ Lydia Shantz/ Wife of/ Amos W. Snyder/ Died/ July 16, 1900,/ Aged 48 Y's. 10 M/ & 30 Days/ Is not e'en death a gain to those/ Whose life to God was given/ Gladly to earth their eyes they close./ To open them in heaven.

      [East] In Memory/ of/ Amos W./ Snyder/ Died/ March 7, 1897,/ Aged 47 Y'rs. 10 m's./ & 19 Days./ In the silent grave we leave thee/ Till the morn when Christ appears/ Then with joy we hope to greet thee/ Far beyond this vale of tears

      [South] In Memory/ of/ Urban/ Son of/ Amos & Lydia/ Snyder/ Died Oct. 30, 1896/ Aged/ 21 Years 7 Mo's/ & 6 Days/ God in his wisdom has recalled/ The precious boon his love had given/ And though the casket moulders here/ The gem is sparkling in heaven
