      Identified as Delia Ann Jeffrey, white female, widow; died Sep 3 1900 at St. Clara, age 73y 11m 19d, cause of death dysentery, buried Sep 4 1900 in West Union.
      (Note: Age at death calculates to a birth date of Sep 15 1826, but reported as Sep 14 1826 in "Davis - The Settlers of Salem WV," p. 75. The 1900 Census also gives her birth date as Sep 1826. However, the birth date on her headstone is incorrectly inscribed as 1814. The death date on her headstone, 1899, is also incorrect.)
