New Bike Company Announcement

Wasn’t sure if that was Latin or another Romance language with which I’m not as familiar (I thought maybe Portugese?) but, according to Google at least, that seems to be Latin. (And sorry about the random red line across the image.)

[note the typo in conjux; ouch to skip a letter in such a permanent medium]

To the memory of my most beloved wife Christine (?) / Christiana, whom, released by death in the 48th year of her life (up to the 48th year of her life) (March 27 (yes?), 1816), her grieving husband, George W. Chapman, a doctor, venerates with this marble inscription and attests to her virtues. May she rest in peace.
