Magdalena Adams lived for 104 years and may have lived even longer. Tradition has it, ....that she did not die a natural death but was killed by a bolt of lightning". (from 1994 Supplement to Adams of the Alleghenies, page 25).
Her tombstone (made of white marble or sandstone) says that she died "loaded with years and virtuous deeds." (from: Adams of the Alleghenies: A Genealogical History of The Adams Family of Conewago, Loretto and St. Augustine, Pa. by Edmund Adams).
"She had her last child at the age of 54, survived her husband's premature death, raised the children, managed the farms and outlived her husband by a full 50 years. (from :" Adams of the Alleghenies: A Genealogical History of The Adams Family of Conewago, Loretto and St. Augustine, Pa." by Edmund Adams).
