Sunday's Obituary: Elizabeth Foster / Thomas Watson

Alexandria Gazette
27 May 1837

DIED, at her residence in Prince William Co., Va., on the 21st inst., Mrs. Elizabeth Foster, aged about 83 years, after a long and most painful illness, which she bore with much submission to the will of Divine Providence.  She was at the time of her death, and had been for 50 years a member of the Baptist Church. She died in the hope of entering into that rest which remaineth to the people of God. She was much respected by her friends, and her memory will be embalmed in the hearts of her surviving children.

On Monday, the 15th inst., in Stafford County, Va., Robert Carroll Brent, in the 35th year of his age. Mr. Brent was formerly an officer in the Army of the United States, and was highly respected for his military acquirements, and much beloved for his amiable and manly character.

In Prince William County Virginia, on Sunday the 21st, Mr. Thomas Watson, a native of England.
