Jem Bags, RIP

A good friend of Jem Bags wrote a mighty fine obituary for the dearly departed, and was even inspired to poetry, after he was cut down like a cowcumber on the ground in 1863.

His mackrel was always nice and smelt sweet, just like his surviving wife. He left his sweet wife, 8 children and a cow, 4 horses and other quadrupeds to morn his loss.
