Wednesday's Child: Thomas H. and Jane Elizabeth Golding

Alexandria Gazette (Alexandria, VA) - November 1, 1856 - At Kinderhook, Prince William County, October 28th, Thomas H. Golding, infant son of Thomas Golding, esq., aged one year and seven months.  "Suffer little children to come unto me, of such is the Kingdom of Heaven."

Alexandria Gazette - November 10, 1856 - At Kinderhook, Prince William county, Va., on Tuesday 4th day of November 1856, Jane Elizabeth, daughter of Thomas and Catherine Golding, aged 3 years and 11 months and nine days

A light is from our household gone,
   A voice we loved is still'd.
A place is vacant at our hearth
   Which never can be fill'd.
A gentle heart that throbbed but late
   With tenderness and love,
Has hush'd its weary throbbing here,
   To live in bliss above.
Yes, to the home where angels are,
   Her ransomed soul has fled;
And yet we bend about her tomb
   With teas, and call her dead.
We call her dead, but ah! we know
She dwells where living waters flow.
