Saturday, July 23, 1859

SMITH, Ella - Died, on Thursday the 21st inst. at the Hotel of Mr. Onstott, of consumption, Mrs. Ella Smith, wife of Mr. E.G. Smith of the Overland Mail Co.

Obviously this stone and grave are endangered. I read the stone by using aluminum foil, and the inscription of the two pieces read as follows:

Ella A.
wife of
G. Smith
Died 1855 ??
Aged ?? Years

"-----ds as you pass by
As you are now so once was I
As I am now so you will be
Prepare for death and follow me"

A piece of the stone was missing that the age of Mrs. Smith was inscribed on.
