A Life Lived

To the memory of Frances, the beloved wife of Evan Nicholas of this town, Master of the Brig Victory, and Daughter of John & Mary Owen of Rhosmaen who departed this life July 1st A.D.1845 aged 34 years.

Also of John Owen Nicholas,eldest son of the above Evan & Frances Nicholas, who departed this life at sea on Board the Brig Victory off Cape Clear Ireland, June 20th A.D. 1844 aged 12 years.

Also of David Nicholas, son of the above parents who died at sea on Board the Brig Victory off the Skillicks rocks Ireland Aug. 8th A.D. 1849 aged 15 years & 9 months.

Also to the memory of the above Evan Nicholas who died August 27th 1877 aged 80 years.

Just think about his life.

It makes me feel like a wanker for worrying that the battery in my Garmin isn’t charged.
