Sunday's Obituary: Maria Thornton

Alexandria Gazette
November 3, 1855

At Snow Hill, Prince Wm. County, Va., on Monday morning, the 28th of October, MARIA THORNTON, daughter of Dr. Charles B. Stuart, in the 24th year of her age.  Lovely and beloved by all, she has passed away; a firm faith in Christ enabled her calmly and peacefully to enter the dark valley, for she knew in whom she had believed.  She felt that her body as well as her spirit was included in the redemption price of Calvary.  That body now rests in the earth awaiting the summons, 'awake and sing, ye that dwell in the dust.'
