Second wife of Maj. George Turberville and the first burial at Hickory Hill, the epitaph on her tomb was published in the Oct 1898 issue of the William & Mary College Quarterly and reads thus:
"To the Memory of Lettice TURBERVILE Who Was Born the 15th day of July, 1707, Daughter of Hon. William Fitzhugh Esq., by Ann his Wife Who was the Daughter of the Honr Richd Lee. Those Excellent Natural Endowments Which very Early Discovered themselves Were Carefully Cherished and Improved by her Wise and Virtuous Parents. From A Child She Knew the Scriptures Which Made Her Wise unto Salvation: From Her Infancy She Learned Walh [sic] In the Paths of Virtue. She Was Beautifull But Not Vain: Witty But Not Talkativ: Her Religion was Pure Fervent Cheerful and of the Church of England: Her Virtue Steadfast Easey Natural: Her Mind had that Mixture of Nobeleness and Gentleness As Made Her Lovely in the Eyes of all People. She Was Marryed to Capt. GEORGE TERBERVILLE [sic] May the 16th 1727. the best of Wives Made him the Happiest of Husbnads. She died the 10th of Feb. 1732 Great with Child in 25th Year of Her Age and 6th of her Marryage. Who Can Express the Greif. Soon Did She Compleat Her Perfection, Soon Did She finish Course of Life. Early Was She Exempted From the Miseries of Human Life By God's particuler Grace. Thus Doth He Deal With his Perticuler Favorites. All that was good in Woman Kind A Beauteous Form More Lovely Mind Lies Buryed underNeath this Stone Who Living was Excelled by None." Quite a eulogy!
