      Historic Graves of Maryland and the District of Columbia By Helen West Ridgely, National Society of the Colonial Dames of America;

      The churchyard at Chaptico has its traditions also. ..
      To the memory of Cecelia Brown Lyles, who departed this life May 30 [
      10 ?] 1828 aged 40 years & 2 months
      This tomb is erected by her devoted husband Wm. H. Lyles.
      O! here my friend the fair Cecelia's laid
      Too soon alas! the debt of nature's paid
      Such virtue would adorn each sphere of life
      And grace the friend, the parent, child and wife
      Sweet are the slumbers of thy virtuous breast
      Sweet is thy sleep & all thy cares at rest.
      Th' unfettered soul has bust the bars of night
      And winged its passage to the realms of light.
