Theodosia, the wife of Andrew Reed, is buried with Andrew next to Ben and Sarah Franklin in the Christ Church Burial Grounds at 5th and Arch Sts. in Philadelphia. Section A # LXXXIV

Her gravestone reads:

In Memory of THEODOSIA

the wife of Andrew Reed

who departed this life

the 19th of MArch 1753

Aged 32 years.

"Live's maze I've trod;I've met the appointed Day;

And here in dust now sleeps my breathless clay.

The Blow how sudden; how sever the Dart;

How early levelled at my tender Heart.

But stop,kind reader;cease to view me here.

Know where I dwell, above the starry sphere.

Would you, secure, the threats of Death defy,

Like me religious live; like me serenely die."
