Birth: 1820
Gloucester County
Virginia, USA
Death: Jan. 31, 1893
Richmond City

Grace was the youngest daughter of Aaron Belvin & Elizabeth Dobson, and the sister of Frances Belvin Rowe & John Belvin. She married Henry Atkinson on Sept. 3, 1839, and they had 5 children: Octavia Atkinson Gentry, Virginia Atkinson, Henry Atkinson Jr, William Atkinson & Lucy Atkinson Fleet.

From the Richmond Times, Feb. 3, 1893:

The funeral of Mrs. Grace Elizabeth Atkinson will take place this afternoon from the Union-Station Methodist church at 2:30. ... Mrs. Atkinson was a woman of lovely Christian character, and one who in life practiced most lavishly the greatest of cardinal virtues - charity. She had been sick several months, yet her death was unexpected to the family. She was in the seventy-third year of her age, the beloved wife of Henry A. Atkinson, Esq., the well-known furniture dealer of this city; the only sister of the late John A. Belvin, and the mother of Mrs. W. J. Gentry, Mrs. John A. Fleet, of Mathews county; Henry A. Atkinson, Jr., and William Hayes Atkinson
