Still, Still with Thee When Purple Morning Breaketh

Lovely white marble relief portrait on the headstone of Emily Norwood Martin Upton (1846-1870), wife of Maj. Gen. Emory Upton, in Fort Hill Cemetery, 19 Fort Street in Auburn, New York. Emory Upton was a Union officer in the Army of the Potomac during the American Civil War. Emily and Emory married in 1868, but she died of tuberculosis two years later while attempting to recover in the Bahamas. Emory was devastated by her loss, and never remarried. Her epitaph reads, "Still, Still with Thee When Purple Morning Breaketh..."
