Lucy Frances "Frankie" Jepson
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Jan. 3, 1860
Death: Jan. 6, 1885
San Francisco
San Francisco County
California, USA

Lucy Frances Jepson, a native Californian, was a talented young writer who died at the age of 25. She was the daughter of William Lemmon Jepson and Martha Ann Potts Jepson, early settlers in Solano County, California.

"Frances Jepson" as she was called, knew things by intuition. She hungered and thirsted for knowledge, and the faster it came the greater were her exertions in its aquisition and pursuit. As a writer she exhibited, when a young girl, very extraordinary talents. Her ambitions were far in excess of her physical capabilities. Had she been endowed with the requisite physical strength she surely would have filled some very important position in life. It could almost be said of her (as Alexander Pope said of himself when a child): She "lisped in numbers for the numbers came." But the "blade was too sharp for the scabbard."
