Lucy served as a nurse with the Third Vermont Infantry, apparently from it's initial organization, "nursed many a sick soldier back to life and health in Camp Lyons, Camp Advance and Griffin, near Washington, D.C." (St. Albans Messenger, 30 April 1914).
She married George W. Young in St. Johnsbury in 1864.
In another article in 1914 detailing their 50th wedding anniversary, she was erroneously listed as the "only surviving Civil War army nurse in Vermont," (Caledonian, 28 April 1914).
Her headstone is inscribed "Army Nurse in Civil War 1861 - 65".
The above information was provided by Tom Ledoux, Webmaster, Vermont in the Civil War.
