Obituary - Judith Ligon (1841)


Of pulmonary consumption at her residence in Amelia County on the 7th inst, Mrs. Judith Ligon, consort of Mr. Robert Ligon and second daughter of Mr. Edward Green. She bore her severe and protraced ilness with much patience and resignation -- sustained by that Savior whose sufferings and death redeemed her, and by whose prevalent interceptsions above she hoped to be accepted at last. As she drew near the grave, she expressed her entire willingness, nay, even anxiety to be with him, whom, not having seen, she loved. She left an attached husband, an only child and many friends and relatives to mourn her loss. She was aimable and kind in all the relations of life, as a wife, a neighbor, a friend; and her family and the circle in which she moved, will long cherish the recollection of her many virtues.
