Wednesday's Child: Davies / Wheat / Weedon

Daily National Intelligencer (Washington, DC) - February 28, 1843 - At Neabsco, Prince William county, Virginia, on Sunday, the 13th instant, in the sixth year of her age, of croup, Virginia, eldest daughter of William and Virginia Davies, of Louisville, Kentucky.

Daily National Intelligencer - November 6, 1844 - On the 18th October last, in Prince William county, Virginia, Richard W., son of Dr. R. W. and Ann L. Wheat, in the 5th year of his age.

Alexandria Gazette (Alexandria, VA) - September 17, 1853 - DIED, of putrid sore throat, at the residence of her father, Rose Hill, Prince William County, on Wednesday, the 14th instant, Sarah C. E., eldest daughter of F. A. and H. C. Weedon, in the 13th year of her age.  "The Lord gave, and the Lord hath taken away."

Alexandria Gazette - September 20, 1853 - On the 14th instant, at the residence of her father, in Prince William County, Va., Sally C. E., eldest daughter of F. A. Weedon, esq., in the 14th year of her age.  The sweetness and amiability of her disposition, her frank and unaffected manners, the purity and loveliness of her character had endeared to her many friends, who deeply lament that one so young and fair should have been marked by the insatiable Archer.  Btu it is our consolation to know with calm resignation, after an affecting and affectionate leave of relatives and friends, she met her fate in peace, with the assurance of a better life hereafter.  J. T. E.
