“Departed this life, on Monday morning the 30th of August, Mrs. Rachel Frost, [first] wife of William Frost, and daughter of William and Susan Wright, in the 30th year of her age. But a few weeks have passed away since we saw the deceased in the enjoyment of all that is calculated to render life desirable. Surrounded by the advantages of wealth and all the endearments of domestic life, we thought her prospects for a long and happy life, were without a shadow. But alas, alas, how uncertain are all our earthly expectations. In an unexpected hour the angel of death came and took her,

To that land where beauty cannot fade,
Nor sorrow dim the eye;
Where true love shall not drop, nor be discouraged,
And none shall ever die;

The deceased left a devoted husband, two infant sons, and a numerous circle of relatives and friends to mourn her early death.

Leaves have their time to fade,
And flowers to wither at the North wind’s blast,
And the stars to set—but all,
Thou hast all seasons for thine own, O Death!
[signed] E.”

“Death. Mrs. Sarah Frost, [second] wife of William Frost, Esq., of Shade Mills, Garrett county, Md., died at her residence at that place Sunday morning last, Feb. 1st, 1874, aged 45 years, 5 months and 5 days. Mrs. Frost had suffered for several years from cancer of the breast, which, defying an extended and varied course of medical treatment, grew worse and worse until death ensued. Her sufferings almost continually intense were borne with christian patience and resignation. She was an estimable lady and her death is deeply lamented by a large number of relatives and friends. Her funeral took place from the Frostburg M.E. Church on Tuesday, from whence her remains were taken and interred in the Methodist [sic] Cemetery, Rev’s L.T. Widerman and L.W. Haslup officiating. Mrs. Frost was the daughter of Mr. John Neff, of Frostburg. She leaves her husband and three grown children.” [FMJ 2-7-1874, p. 3].

“’Come to Me.’ Written in memory of Mrs. Sarah Frost, who died February 1, 1874, aged 45 years, 5 months and 5 days, and respectfully dedicated to her bereaved family by Mrs. Maud Humphrey.

I cannot come back to you, darlings;
O, in my celestial home,
The glorious choirs are chanting
Another earth pilgrim has come;
The towers are glittering and shining;
Sweet strains floating liquid and free;
The echoes the angels are singing,
Are loved ones—come loved ones, to me.

I cannot come back to you daughter;
No, I would not return if I could.
In the city whose glorious foundation
Endures by the word of our God.
Today in that heavenly country,
A citizen loyal and free,
I am dwelling among the Immortal;
Dear Loved ones, come—loved ones, to me.

It is hard for your heart while tis aching,
And moaning for me in its pain,
But had you one glance of the city,
