In Memory of
James H. Walsh

A brave soldier, a loving husband, a devoted
father, and a loyal friend.
Swett's Battery
A precious one from us has gone
A voice we loved is stilled
A place is vacant in our home
which never can be filled.
God, in his wisdom, has recalled
The boon his love had given.
And though the body moulders here,
The soul is safe in Heaven.
