Margaret Pilcher

 

“In memory of Mrs. Margaret Pilcher Wife of Fred Pilcher who departed this life December 20, 1827 Aged 57 years. Her pious and dutiful life was extended to an honorable old age and closed by an exemplary death. Her charity had its ***** in religion. Her love of her neighbour was the genuine seat of her love of God. Her rest ****** was the fruit of her faith and she died in hope because she had lived a Christian.” [Stone disintegrating. (*)

The Historical Sketch of 1892 gives 1827 as the date of her death; the “7” is now entirely gone. Several other words could not be positively deciphered.]

I am looking for information on Maria Blakey b. 1803 d. 1845, supposedly buried in Fredericksburg, Virginia. I don’t know if this is her married name or maiden name, but I have two portraits of her and presumably her husband. I would like to be able to trace how I am related to them. I believe it is through the Newman family somehow, because the name Blakey shows up in that family history and I got the paintings through that side of my family. Sometime in the 1800’s John Francis Newman married Ann Blakey as his second wife, and they would be my great great grandparents. It is possible Maria Blakey is somewhere up the chain from there. Maybe her parents? Another avenue is that the older brother of John Francis Newman, Thomas Noel Newman, married a Mary Blakey. So, they could be up the chain from her as well. Any information anyone has would be much appreciated! Thanks! Once I have the paintings restored I would be happy to post photos if anyone else is interested in seeing them.

[2] I’m sorry, none of those names are familar. The time period of my Blakey line is abt. 1650- 1850, when it daughtered out when Maria Ann Blakey married John Francis Newman. They lived in Middlesex County, Spotsylvania county and the Madison, Culpeper, Green/Orange countys in Virginia – mine in the Stanardsville area of Green County. My relatives of that line still primarily live in Virginia.

[3] Per The Blakey Book Maria Blakey b.ca 1831 married John F. Newman on June 4, 1851. Her parents were James Gaines Blakey and Maria Ann sorrille. John Newman’s first wife was Eliza Simms. John had 3 children by Maria: James, Nannie and Mary. Mary married james B. Kite, Nannie married William Walker.

[4] 2/15/1823. Newman was plaintiff- Superior Court of Chancery. Ask defendant to appear on 10th day of next term
