Full Epitaph: 
Anne Rushton the affectionate wife and beloved partner of William Rushton, born in Liverpool 19th September 1811, died at Calcutta 10th September 1842. How can I live without thee, how forgo Thy sweet converse, and love so dearly join’d, To live again in these wild woods forlorn. Should God create another Eve, and I another rib afford, Yet loss of thee, would never from my heart, No, no, I feel the link of nature draw me, Flesh of flesh, bone of my bone thou art, and from thy state, Mine never shall be parted, bliss or woe.

William Rushton became proprietor of The Bengal Sporting Magazine that was founded in 1833 by Joachim Stocqueler; and the publisher of the weekly paper, The Oriental Literary Observer.
