Sunday's Obituary: Lucie A. (Simpson) Hereford

Alexandria Gazette (Alexandria, VA)
August 15, 1856

On Wednesday, the 6th day of August, at their residence on Mercer's Bottom, Marion County, Va., LUCIE A.., the wife of Wm. P. Hereford, Jr. and daughter of Caleb Simpson, of Prince William County, Va., in the 25th year of her age, leaving an infant only twelve days old.  She was naturally mild and amiable.  She met death with entire christian resignation to the will of Heaven, and bore with admirable meekness and sweetness her intense sufferings.  It may be a melancholy satisfaction to her parents and other distant relatives, to learn that she was greatly beloved by her neighbors, whose kindness and attentions were unremitting -- "The Lord gave, and the Lord hath taken away, blessed be the name of the Lord."  T.P.H.
