William John Barton
January 30, 1821 - October 11, 1902


William John Barton Grave in Parowan, Iron County, Utah.

God saw you getting tired,
and a cure was not to be,
so he put his arms around you
and whispered, "Come to me"

With tearful eyes we watched you,
and saw you pass away,
and although we loved you dearly,
we could not make you stay.

A golden heart stopped beating,
hard working hands at rest.
God broke our hearts to prove to us,
he only takes the best
