Lucy Capps and the slave women were busily engaged in weaving cloth for the plantatation needs when she was seized with labor pains for the birthing of her 12th and last child. Her eldest son was 33 years of age. She 46. She never returned to her unfinished task at her loom as neither she nor the child survived.

Lucy Capps
Born Feb 22, 1803
Died Jan 14, 1849
In the 46th year of her age

Rest mother rest in quiet sleep
While friends in sorrow o'er thee weep
Indeed their heartfelt offerings bring
And near thy grave thy requiem sing

Lovely babe how brief thy stay
Short and hasty was thy way
Ending soon thy sojourn here
Pains and grief no more to bear
