Tompson, Elizabeth (1792–1822)

On Tuesday night last, the 19th instant, after a painful illness of less than three days, which she bore with the most pious fortitude, Elizabeth, the wife of Mr. Charles Tompson, of Hunter-street. She was born in this Colony; and, to do her no more than justice, we can say she was a pattern worthy of imitation, as a dutiful daughter, a virtuous and affectionate wife, a tender mother, and sincere friend. She leaves a disconsolate husband, and six children, to deplore her sudden and irreparable loss.
