    ERECTED
    To the fond memory of
    HANNAH HEATH
    wife of the late
    William Heath, Esq.
    who died July 29, 1854
    AE. 86 yrs.

    She was the daughter of Nehemiah
    & Elizabeth Allen; was born in Beverly
    Mass. 1768 married to Wm. Heath
    a Soldier of the revolution 1786, &
    settled on Mount Desert 1789 where
    after passing a long and useful life,
    she fell asleep with the hope of a
    reunion and glorious immortality.

    "I go to prepare a place for you, that when
    I am there, ye may be also." They meet
    husband and wife to part no more,
    Within that house, not made with hands,
    on the celestial shore.

    Dear mother thou art gone to rest,
    And this shall be our prayer:
    That when we reach our journey's end
    thy glory we may share.

    The two tall headstones to the right in the photo are for the graves of Capt. William Heath, Sr. and his wife Hannah (Allen) Heath. In spite of the fact that this cemetery is almost lost in the deep woods of Mt. Desert Island, Veteran Day flags are still placed on the grave of Capt. Heath, a veteran of the Revolutionary War.
