The Faithful Wife

This headstone has an interesting duo of ladies head corbels on either side of the stone which appears to support the arch above them. The second head shown has a thinner face and a stern expression. And whilst Charles gets his name on the stone twice, it's Sophia who receives the glowing character reference.  
The inscription reads:
Grateful Rememberance of
SOPHIA
The Faithful and Affectionate
Wife of
CHARLES RIGGS
Died July? 7. 1865
Aged 61

Also
CHARLES RIGGS
Husband of the Above
Died Oct 8. 1887
Aged 80
