Amiable Partner

Colonial Dorchester Park, S.C.

Mrs. Louisa C. Houseal, the amiable partner of Dr. John C. Houseal who departed this life on the 7th January 1814 aged 39 years, 2 months & 16 days.

He had her life marked down to the day. Amiable companion. Something very sweet about that. I googled to see if it was a term used and found another here. The interesting thing is that the husband was a physician in that case as well.

Died MUCH too young!

I love reading/hearing the vernacular of "the olden days". I wonder what they'll think of our ways 200 years from now?
