I have been given the following note regarding the death of John’s second wife:
Frances Elizabeth Marsh, Wife of J Mibourne Marsh Esq And daughter of Dr David Grant Born 8th Dec 1798 And died 16th April 1819 aged 20 years and four months Leaving a disconsolate husband sorrowing too her brother and sisters afflicted friends and two infants, Frances Mary Anne (Lucy) and John Milbourne Marsh. Death lies on her like an untimely frost [lies?] on the fairest flower of all the fields. She was good as she was fair! Pure in thought as angels are!
