Died in James City County, Sept 15, Mr. Benjamin Allen, aged 63. He was one of the 450 Militia who were posted at Hampton, and who, on the 25th of January 1813, repulsed Admiral Cockburn's party, but were compelled to retire on General Beckwith's coming up with a reinforcement of 2000. It is related of Mr. Allen that he was very superstitious with regard to odd numbers, and often said he would never reach the age of 64. Sure enough, he died on an odd day of an odd month, of an odd year of his age. [The Daily Dispatch. (Richmond [Va.]), 11 Feb. 1854]
Mrs. Mary Andrews
Died, at Richmond, on the 12th inst. After a severe illness, Mrs. Mary Andrews of Williamsburg, widow of the late Robert Andrews, Professor of Mathematicks in the University of William & Mary, at that place. - Her death will cause a sad chasm in the circle of her friends and acquaintance, and the poor have lost a friend not easily to be supplied.

We learn from the Williamsburg Gazette that an inquest was recently held over the body of Julius, a negro man belonging to J.B. Bailey of York. He was found dead in the road. The jury brought in a verdict of "accidental drowning;" but there are strong probabilities that liquor was the real cause of his death. [The Daily Dispatch. (Richmond [Va.]), 11 Feb. 1854]
At his residence, in Caroline county, Doctor John Bankhead, aged seventy six years. He was born in Westmoreland County, and commenced his education at William & Mary College, while Dunmore was Governor of Virginia. Dr. B. was one of that corps of chivalric boys, who, excited by the spirit of the revolution, formed themselves into an armed company for the protection of the city of Williamsburg.—Arriving at age, he became a student of the celebrated Medical school of Edinburg, which then ranked among its pupils, Sir James Mackintosh, Thomas Addis Emmet, S. L. Mitchell, and Caspar Wistar. He here pursued his studies with much assiduity for four years, and at the time of his graduation, he published a Latin thesis, the uncommon [sic] beauty and elegance of which gained him much fame. Returning to Virginia he practiced physic with great success, obtaining a reputation which results from the exercise of that learning which preserves, and the benevolence which elevates, the profession of Medicine. Dr. B. was a chaste and deeply read scholar; a lively fancy, a sportive wit, and a memory singularly retentive, gave to his conversation a charm of thrilling and intense interest. He was guileless as a child, and, free from prejudice and hate, he extended to the whole human family that generous philanthrophy [sic] which ever springs from an expanded heart.

At Williamsburg, Va., March 2, Virginia Bland, wife of Wm. S. Peachy, and daughter of the late Bathurst Daingerfield, of this place. To many in this city, and its neighborhood, the news of the death of this excellent lady will be received with feelings of the deepest sorrow. At the home of her childhood, are still any friends, who will remember mournfully, the gay and happy girl, as well as afterwards the fond and devoted wife and mother. But she, too, has gone—as all that is bright must fade. We can only cherish in our hearts the remembrance of her virtues, and look with a Christian confidence to the blessed consolations of our holy religion, and to the blessed hope that she is now among the saints in Heaven.

On Sunday the 27th Sept. in the 37th year of his age, Norman R. Fitzhugh, Esq, of the late firm of Kerr & Fitzhugh. Mr. F. had labored for several years under a pulmonary affection, and spent the last winter in Florida in the hope of renovating his health under the influence of a more genial sky; but his disease was too far advanced, and, like the stricken deer, he returned to end his days near the place of his birth and the home of his friends. He died in a calm and peaceful slumber, leaving a disconsolate widow and several small children to mourn their irreparable loss, and will long be affectionately remembered by those few who had an opportunity of knowing and duly appreciating his pure and honorable mind, his sterling integrity, and his consistent walk as a gentleman and Christian.

On Tuesday, June 30, at the residence of his son, in the City of Washington, Robert Greenhow. Mr. Greenhow was born in the City of Williamsburg in the year 1761. Owing to his extreme youth and the position of his father’s family, he took no active part in the Revolutionary struggle, but joining with another in procuring the services of a substitute. He nevertheless served in a junior company, whose duty was confined to the immediate protection of Williamsburg and the neighboring banks of the James River. He was several years Mayor of Williamsburg, and twice represented the county of James City in the Legislature of Virginia. He took up his permanent residence in Richmond in the year 1810, and was Mayor of the city during the last war, when by his firmness and energy, he greatly contributed to the defensive preparations of the day. For more than fifty years a member of the Episcopal Church, he has ever preserved, both as a citizen and a Christian, that unimpeachable and spotless character which needs not eulogy, nor fears reproach.

Mrs. Sarah Griffin
In the city of Williamsburg, on Thursday, Nov. 12th, Mrs. Sarah Griffin, wife of Dr. S. S. Griffin, of that place. The circumstances attending the final hour of this estimable lady were peculiarly distressing. She had retired to bed in her usual good health and spirits, which suddenly, around midnight, she was aroused by the awful summons, and expressed her apprehension of approaching dissolution. Truly was the cruel messenger “like a thief in the night,” for her spirit was hurried away into eternity with only half an hour of premonition. The melancholy event burst upon the family with an afflicting and crushing power, proportioned to the rapidity of its occurrence; and the hour of darkness was rendered yet more dark and drear by the intrusion of the terrific adversary, death. Mrs. Griffin had attained her 59th year. She was a native of Gloucester, and daughter of the late James Lewis, Esq., of that county. In pourtraying [sic] her moral features, wo do not as is the common habit in obituaries, trespass upon the resources of fiction when we represent her as a person of the most unaffected and retiring modesty, the utmost gentleness of demeanor, the most unremitting equanimity, the purest sincerity, and the kindest, most generous and charitable spirit. Freedom from suspicious, and consequent guilelessness, were likewise among her prominent characteristics. She had achieved one of the greatest victories - the victory over the tongue - and never does the writer recollect to have heard a harsh expression escape her. In this, as in all respects, she gave practical evidence of being influenced by Christian principles, although she was prevented by a want of self esteem from profession the religion of the Lord Jesus. She was kind to the poor and the orphan, and when snatched away from the relentless king, was engaged in redeeming a pledge she had made to the mother of a little girl, to take care of her child providing it was bereft of her maternal and protecting arm. Ah! the bitter anguish of that infant bosom on that solemn night! It was enough to awaken sympathy in the heart of adamant. Mrs. G. passed through life quietly and unobtrusively, seeking not the applause of the multitude; but the approval of her own conscience in a faithful discharge or her domestic obligations; and when called before the last tribunal, she met the grim messenger not as a foe, but as a friend, and went away calmly to the Court of Heaven.

John H. Herman
The remains of John H. Herman, the old soldier who died last Wednesday, were buried Saturday morning at the Soldier’s Home. More than usual romance surrounds the career of the deceased. He came from Germany when quite a young man, and secured lucrative employment in Baltimore as a gilder, and in a short while had made a reputation in the line of his trade. One morning about twenty-seven years ago Herman suddenly disappeared, and for ten months his wife and family of little ones heard nothing from him. At the end of this time his wife received a letter, stating that he had enlisted in the army. For twenty-three years he remained in the service, being promoted from private to corporal and then to sergeant, and always re-enlisting as each term of service expires. During most this time he was stationed in the West, and took part in many bloody encounters with the Indians. He was in the battle of Little Big Horn and at Wounded Knee. Finally, his health gave way and he became a total physical wreck. He obtained his discharge, came East and entered the Soldiers’ Home in this city. Two years and a half ago a great desire came over him to see again his wife and children, now grown to their majority. He accordingly wrote to a friend in Baltimore, inclosing a letter to his wife, beseeching her to live with him again. His request was readily granted, and he removed to Baltimore. Three months ago he grew ill with cystic troubles, to which he finally yielded on Wednesday last. The last salute was fired over his grave Saturday morning.

James Lee, Esq.
Died, at his residence in Williamsburg, on the 10th September, James Lee, Esq., in the 63d year of his age. This perhaps was the most sudden death with which our city was ever visited. – In perfect health, at his usual hour he retired for rest, and, in less than a half hour after, his fond family were around his bed, with hearts torn with anguish, and gushing with sorrow at every pore. Perhaps in tie he slept, but in eternity he awoke. This affliction is not confined to his family and a small circle of friends but to society at large; this city and neighborhood have sustained a loss, beyond which it would have endured in the death of any other citizen. For some 30 years or more he had acted as a teacher; as long perhaps, and most faithfully, a Justice of the Peace; for some time, also, Commissioner of the Revenue; and in some other offices, always eliciting confidence, and receiving an approbation seldom awarded to man. In the relations of husband, parent and master, his virtues shone with resplendent radiance; and as an acquaintance or friend, to know him was to live and honor him. He was, indeed, one of these very few instances, who lived beyond the reach of censure; protected by those radiant virtues that gracefully adorn only the truly y useful and good. Always prompt, obliging and kind, he sought not the glare of fashion, or the applause of man, but realized a happiness in the generous approbation of an approving conscience. Cheerful and happy to the last, it would appear that a kind Providence forbore to inflict the pains of death; or , if even inflicted, they were of so short duration, that scarcely were they felt ere his spirit was borne hence to a happier and more genial clime. The Whig and Religious Herald will please copy. [Richmond Enquirer, Richmond, Virginia, November 1, 1845; Transcribed by Karen McPherson]
At Williamsburg, on the 3d October, in the fifth year, Lambeth, son of John and Mary H. Mann. This was a most interesting child, manifesting, as he did, a vigorous and sprightly mind for one of his years, united with a sweet an altogether engaging disposition. It is natural and to be expected that the excellent parents of this lovely child should be distressed on account of this bereavement. It is not in human nature to restrain the gushing fullness of feeling so inseparable from an event of the kind; but there is a rick source of consolation in the words of our Blessed Saviour, who has said—“Suffer little children to come unto me, and forbid them not, for of such in the Kingdom of Heaven.” “What a pure and transcendant love was His! All spiritual, all holy, all divine! There is no love but this which is everlasting. There is no other affection which will resist change, and defy time and conquer death. Celestial beauty is the mantle of this love. It is the rainbow of glory which hangs above the deeply gushing stream that passes from our being into the River of Life above!” This brief extract from the pen of the accomplished Miss S. C. Edgarton, embodies the views and feelings we are permitted to cherish on this subject, breathing, as it does, the sweet consoling spirit of the everlasting Gospel. Let us, then, be cheered at the thought that this late suffering innocent is forever at rest in the bosom of infinite love.
"As the sweet flower that scents the morn, But withers in the rising day, Thus lovely seemed this infant’s dawn - Thus swiftly fled his life away.
"Ere sin could blight or sorrow fade, Death timely came with friendly care; The op’ning bud to Heaven conveyed, And bade it bloom forever there."

Died lately at the Honourable Mr. Carter’s in Westmoreland county Mr. James Marshall, a young Gentleman formerly an usher in the College of William and Mary. That genuine worth, and sentiments of the most unbounded generosity, are not confined to the breasts of the great and opulent alone is evinced by the conduct of a person who with pleasure submitted to an humber employment, that a greater portion of his little patrimony might be spared for the most noble purposes. Delicacy suppresses a narrative of his generous actions, but gratitude will never permit the memory of them to be erased from the breasts of those who have felt their influence.

Sir John Randolph
Williamsburg, March 4. On Wednesday last, between Two and Three in the Morning, died at his House in this City after a long Indisposition, the Hon. Sir John Randolph. (Virginia Gazette, March 4, 1737; Tr. by T. Griffiths)
This gentleman, so well known throughout Virginia, died in Williamsburg last Friday, aged about sixty-five.
This announcement will be received with no ordinary feelings of grief by all who had the pleasure of the acquaintance of so noble and accomplished a specimen of a Virginia gentleman as was Robert Saunders. He was the son of a Virginian of the old school, a friend of Washington, and a brave patriot of the Revolution.
His son received an elegant education at William and Mary and the University, of which institution he was one of the earliest students. He could not, however, avail himself to the full extent of the advantage of these seats of learning, having been attacked by pulmonary disease and very often brought to death’s door by reiterated hemorrhages. His means being ample, he went to Europe to try what a change of air would do for him, and resided for some months in Paris under the care of the medical faculty of that city. He attended faithfully to their prescriptions until he found that their practice did him no good, and he had made up his mind to die. This would surely have been the case, had he not determined in spite of the, to adopt a more generous course of living, which he did—and got well. We remember his appearance when he quite Virginia as that of a dying man. He came back with his health fully restored, a powerful man physically as well and mentally. He was soon after his return elected Professor of Mathematics of William and Mary, which post he filled with distinguished ability, being the worthy associate of such men as Wm. B. Rogers and Thomas R. Dew—and more cannot be said of the talents of any man. He continued in this position till 1845, when he resigned; and thenceforward he devoted himself to agriculture and to literature. When the United States troops advanced up the Peninsula, Mr. Saunders retired within the Confederate lines, and did not return to Williamsburg until the end of the war. He found his magnificent estates mere wrecks, his dwelling pillaged, and his splendid library carried away.
These misfortunes affect Mr. Saunders most deeply; but of all his losses none were so hard to be born as that of his library, which had been inherited from ancestors, added to by his own selections, and which was probably one of the finest private collections in the Union. Under his accumulated misfortunes this good man sand, life was to him no longer to be desired, and he departed, we hope, for a better world, where all sighing and sorrow shall cease, and all tears be wiped from our eyes. In the death of Mr. Saunders, Virginia loses one of her brightest jewels—one of the noblest sons to whom our grand Old Mother ever gave birth.

Littleton Waller Tazewell
Ex-Gov. Littleton Waller Tazewell of Virginia, died at Norfolk on Sunday, in the 86th year of his age. The Norfolk Herald has the following obituary of the distinguished deceased. He was born in the ancient city of Williamsburg, in the year 1774; was educated William and Mary College; studied law under the late John Wickham, of Richmond, and commenced the practice of his profession in his native city. His first public service was in the Legislature of Virginia, of which he was a member when the Madison resolutions of 1798 were adopted. The next year he was elected to Congress, and aided in the choice of Mr. Jefferson over Aaron Burr. He declined a re-election to Congress, and moved to Norfolk in 1801, where he at once commanded a large and lucrative practice, and was soon distinguished among the most distinguished in the State. At the instance of the President of the United States he argued the Yazoo case, with great ability, and added greatly to his reputation by his arguments in the Court of Appeals of Virginia, in some of the most important cases in that court. His last professional effort was when he appeared at the bar of the Supreme Court of the United States, in what was commonly known at the time as the “Cochineal" [sic] case. At this time he was of counsel with Mr. Webster, and opposed by Wm. Pinkney, or Maryland. It was during this exciting trial that Mr. Pinkney died suddenly.
Perhaps no forensic display in our country has been more distinguished for profound and scientific professional lore than in his frequent contests our our immediate Courts, with his great competitor, the late Judge Taylor. In these contests the principles of civil, municipal, and maritime law were discussed with the ability which, at the time, commanded general admiration, and lifted the advocates to the highest point of professional fame.
Mr. Tazewell was appointed in 1820 one of the commissioners under the Florida Treaty; and this work accomplished, he was elected to the Senate of the United States, where he found no superior even in the of Clay, Calhoun, and Webster. His last public service was as the Governor of this State, which office he resigned before the expiration of his term and returned to this city, where he ever since resided, an object of affection and admiration to all our citizens.

Dr. William Tazewell
On Wednesday, Oct 21st, Dr. Wm. Tazewell of this city, in the 66th year of his age. In the death of this erudite man, Society has sustained a loss scarcely to be repaid.—Skilled in all the lore of American and European Schools, he was indeed an ornament to that profession which calls on every science to lend her aid in forming the accomplished physician. For many hears an active practitioner of medicine, he was eminently successful; and for the last 12 or 15 years he had retired from the practice of his profession, leaving the field to more youthful competitors, but never refusing his aid when called on the exercise that skill for which n early life he had been distinguished. In all the relations of life, the writer of this humble tribute, knows him to have been characterized by a tenderness of affection almost feminine, and would mingle his tears with those of the widow and orphans, whom this affecting dispensation deprives of a husband and father.
