Wife of David Prewit who died and was buried in Fayetteville, AR during the Civil War. Daughter of William Downs and Elizabeth Duck Downs. Mother of 9 children, including John and William Prewit who were lost to the Mountain Meadows Massacre. One of the first burials in what now is the Bruno Cemetery. Grave is now unmarked. The cemetery was partly on the David Prewit property initially. Her birth date is recorded in the family bible, but her death date is not certain. She was enumerated in the Marion County 1850 census with her family, but not in the 1860 census. So she died somewhere between those dates, likely the late 1850s to 1860. She is the mother of the following children: Sarah born 27 Jan 1830 who married William Thomas Elam, Elizabeth born 3 Mar 1831 who married Spencer Wright, Jane (Ginne) who married James Robert Goodall, Barbara (Barbary) who married Willis Wright, Lucinda (Lucindy) who married Elijah Milton Keeling, John born 8 Jan 1837, William born 26 July 1839 (previously mentioned), David born 18 Feb 1841 who married Abigail Cartwright, Elijah born 1 Apr 1844, who married Joe Pettus Lane Brown. David and Elijah both served in the same company as their father in the Civil War.
