Alexandria Gazette
2 August 1854

At the residence of Mrs. Latimer, near Brentsville, Prince William County, Va., on Monday, the 31st of July, in the 56th year of her age, Mrs. Rebecca Ann Barron, wife of Henry A. Barron, of Alleghany county, Md. -- Mrs. B. has been confined to her room and bed for more than 6 months, with a cancer. Her sufferings were intense all the time, but they were borne by her with that christian resignation for which she was so eminent. She embraced religion in the year 1833, and joined the M. E. Church of which she continued a consistent member to the day of her death. Her trust in the Lord was firm, and her death peaceful and happy.  She leaves an afflicted husband, and numerous friends and relatives to mourn their loss.
