Obituary - Mrs. Judith Ligon & Infant Daughter Sarah (1832)

Departed this life, on the 7th of August last, of pulmonary consumption, Mrs. Juditha Ligon, consort of James Ligon, and daughter of the late Col. W. Bentley - and on the 2nd day afterwards, her infant daughter, Sarah, leaving a discolate husband and four little daughters to be moan their irreperable loss. At the time of Mrs. Ligon's death, a second daughter was expected every moment to breathe her last, and preparation was made to buy her with her mother; but it has pleased God to spare her, and she is now just recovering from her tedious indisposition.
