Cowper, Ann (1782–1831)

This estimable lady, whose piety and many virtues will endear her memory to all who had the pleasure of her acquaintance, was on Sunday in the enjoyment of her usual health, and attended divine service; on Monday she was attacked with a violent indisposition, which baffled the utmost skill of her medical attendants, and continued to increase, until, at about 11 o'clock on Tuesday night, it pleased the Almighty Giver and Disposer of human life, to release her from all earthly sufferings, and to take her to himself. The remains of this lamented lady were followed to the grave on Friday morning by all the heads of departments now in town, and by a number of private friends. The children of the school taught by Mrs. Cowper in person for many years, also attended, and were not the least interesting portion of the mournful spectacle.
