Aged 5 years 9 months and 1 day. (Winny/Wincy) was the daughter of George & Elizabeth Stanback.

From Earth she flew to meet that blissful home, Where purest spirits in soft union roam;
This thought the wounded heart of friendship hills, And at the loss due resignation feels.

Dear Parents grieve no more for me  for it was God, who called me hence,
That I might strike my Infant Harp in chords of innocence above.
