Laodicea "Dicey" Langston Springfield
Birth: May 14, 1766
Death: May 23, 1837
Travelers Rest
Greenville County
South Carolina, USA

Dicey died on May 23, 1837. Her obituary read:

"Died on Tuesday, the 23rd, Mrs. Laodicea Springfield, aged 71 years, wife of Thomas Springfield. The deceased was the daughter of Solomon Langston of Revolutionary memory, whose family perhaps suffered more from the ruthless ravages of the Tories and Indians than almost any other, and the subject of this remark took an active part in the struggle and performed many daring deeds on behalf of her suffering country and friends. She was the mother of 22 children and has left about 140 grand and great grand children. She was a kind and affectionate wife, mother, and neighbor, and has left a large circle of acquaintances to deplore her loss."

Note: Lucky me!! Two of my family lines (totally different lines) go back to Dicey. One goes straight back to Dicey and the other goes straight back to her sister, Selah. Such a co-incidence .....Couldn't believe my eyes when I found this and at the time, had no idea who Dicey really was. Only later did I realize the impact of this relationship.

Here are my two lines back to Dicey and Selah:

Selah Langston/Styles
Clabourn M. Styles
John Langston Styles
Frances Permelia Styles/Duncan - GGrandmother
Georgia Gertrude Duncan/Stallings - Grandmother (paternal)
