Maria Hanson Sheffey
1781–1862 (m. 1812)
In the churchyard of Trinity Parish Church, Staunton, Augusta county, Virginia:
"Beneath this stone are entombed the mortal remains of Daniel Sheffy.
Who died, suddenly, on Dec. 3, 1830.
Endowed by nature with extraodinary power of mind,
He arose to the highest rank at the bar.
And in the counsels of the Nation, he attained the most exalted eminence.
Equalled by few in the force of intellect, he was excelled by none.
In integrity, and principle and gentleness of heart,
to the memory of the most affectionate husband and the most tender father,
Bereaved affection has raised this humble monument.
