“The Wife of my Youth”

This 19th century graveyard monument in Mercer Cemetery engraved to “The Wife of My Youth” first makes you wonder what kind of monument the wife of his dotage got. But the phrase is from the Old Testament of the Bible:

Let thy fountain be blessed: and rejoice with the wife of thy youth.

Proverbs 5:18
