Martha A. Maner
Daughter of John S. & Catherine Maner
Born December 22nd 1830,
Died on the 9th September 1848,
Aged 17 years 8 months 18 days
At Montplier in Georgia,
where she
had gone to complete her education.
A painful illness of thirty days
Convalescence was borne with patience
gentleness and fortitude.
Early, bright, transient, chase and went to Heaven.
During her life she commanded the
Admiration, love and esteem of all who
knew her
Her remains lie beneath his stone
waiting the summons of her Redeemer
to put on immortality and life.

Parental Affection
rears this stone
in memory of
Elizabeth Ann Robert
Eldest daughter of
John S. and Catherine Maner.
She was born in this vicinity,
Dec. 9, 1810 and here died
June 20, 1834.
Much loved in live for uncommon virtue
She was no less mourned over in death
At the too early flight of every promise.
Parents, brothers, sisters, friends 
can alone properly estimate her worth
Hence with them it is left
Imitate her example
And gain her blessedness
To share it with her forever.
She died - she gazed on weeping friends
But death had not his terrors when he came.
Around her hovered angels, at her side,
There stood hope! The Savior is his name.

Simply to Thy Cross I Cling
Wife of
Maj. J. S. Maner
May 27th 1862.
Aged 68 years.
"Blessed are the Pure in heart
for they shall see God."

In Memory of
John S. Maner
Born 3rd July 1785
Died 18th June 1852
A native of
this community where he 
occupied a high position
and exerted a wide influence
for many year,
Serving the people in the
House of Representatives
then the Senate
which bodies elected him
Major of the Army in
the War of 1812.
By industry & enterprise
he acquired an ample estate
to all the relations of life
he evinced the courtesy
and hospitality of the
Gentleman with out 
pride or ostentations.
Other side:
Husband and Father, Friend
and Master he was loved and 
valued while living and
deeply deplored when gone.
Truthfulness, Sincerity & zeal
for improvements were the
great traits of his character.
In 1832 he made Profession of
the Religion of Christ.
Prosperous in life
He as happy in death.
After life's fitful dream he sleeps well
"And I am glad that he has 
lived thus long
and glad that he has gone
to his reward 
nor can I deem that nature
did him wrong.
Softly to disintegrate the 
vital cord.
For when his hand grew
palsied and his eye
dark with the mist of age, 
it was his time to die."

Born March 27th 1827
Died July 26th 1866
"She stretched out her heart to the poor.
Yea, she reacheth forth her hand to the needy."
"She openeth her mouth with wisdom, 
and in her tongue is the law of kindness.
Her children rise up and call her blessed.
Her husband also, and he praiseth her
Give her of the fruit of her hands
And let her own work praise her in the gates.

Oh! Well she knew that though her lot had been
supremely blest
Though the world seemed a happy spot, yet 
"this was not her rest"
The richer feelings of her heart to earth she 
had not given,
For hers had been that "better part" to last 
alone in heaven.
