During the early years of their married life, Mr. and Mrs. Quinn resided in Maryland, moving to Marshfield, Missouri, in the year 1878, making that place their home until 1910, when they came to Clark county, to spend their declining years, making their home with their daughters, Mrs. Larrick, where Mr. Quinn peacefully passed to his eternal home.  He was a man of genial kindly disposition who loved his friends and was by them beloved.  His children will ever cherish the memory of his tender kindness to them.  All the surviving children and his faithful companion are here present.

"Tis hard to break the tender cord,
When love has bound the heart.
"Tis hard to speak the words,
"We must forever part."
Dearest love one we must lay thee,
In the peaceful grave's embrace.
But thy memory will be cherished,
Till we see thy heavenly face.
