Patriot, wife of a signer of the Declaration of Independence.
Someone tampered with the headstone to change the age from 87 years and 14 days to read 82 years, but in addition, a letter written by her daughter 5 years after her death, said not only that she was born in Williamsburg but that she was 87 years and 17 days old when she died. Her obituary said she died on Sept 14, 1830, but that appears to have been an error.
In Memory of Mrs. Lucy Nelson Relict of Gov. Thomas Nelson Died Sept. 18th 1830 Aged 82 Year & 14 Days Having Adored the Doctrine of God
Based on the calendar and the date of birth I have, it should read 25 days. Thus if anyone has a different opinion on the birth date it would be welcomed. If the number is 14 then the birth date would have been Sept. 4.
