John RADLEY , 18041882 (aged 78 years)

Given names

The headstone reads - John Radley, husband of Ethelia Radley departed this life February 13th, 1882, aged 78 years

Why should our tears in sorrow flow, When God calls his own. And bids them leave a world of woe, for an immortal crown. Is not eer death a gain to those whose Life to God was given. Gladly to earth their eyes they close To open them in heaven.

I have some doubts about the convict information. I have had a quick review of the PJ Anthology and I cannot readily find a link with the above facts. More work needs to be done.
