Long Description:
"[The church] shelters an exquisite thing. In a dimly lighted chamber lies a beautiful woman asleep, her head on a cushion, a spray of lilies in her hand, a smile on her lips, and on her tomb the words:


THINKING THAT OUR REMEMBRANCE
THOUGH UNSPOKEN
MAY REACH HER WHERE SHE LIVES
HARRIET ANNIE ROBERTSON
DIED JUNE 13th 1891.


It was an Italian sculptor who fashioned her in white marble here, working with great skill on every detail of her gown, her dainty lace, her cushion with a tasselled cord, her patterned pillow, and her coverlet of lovely folds. She was Harriet Annie Robertson, the lady of the Hall, who with her husband bore the cost of the charming restoration of the church. They were beloved by all who knew them."
