Birth: Apr. 8, 1757
Death: 1833

Jane Meriwether Dabney of Albemarle County, Virginia was the daughter of Elizabeth Thorton and Thomas Meriwether. She was an aunt of Meriwether Lewis, who in conjunction with Colonel Clark, conducted their celebrated expedition.
Miss Meriwether married Samuel Dabney on February 4, 1775, and their union produced thirteen children. They resided in Cub Creek, Louisa County, Virginia. Samuel then died relatively young in 1798, making it difficult for his wife to maintain and educate their large family. Jane was greatly assisted by her brother-in-law, Colonel Charles Dabney.
