Sunday's Obituary: Susana Slade

Washington Gazette
22 October 1821

On the 7th inst. at Dumfries, of perfect exhaustion after delivery, in the 23d year of her age, Mrs. Susana Slade, consort of Richard Slade, Esq. and eldest daughter of the Rev. M. L. Weems -- leaving those affectionate relatives not so much to grieve as to rejoice with thankfulness to God for the loan; though alas! too short of a wife and a daughter, whose early piety and virtues rendered her so lovely in life, and after death so precious to memory.   (Communicated)
