    She watched beside the suffer's bed,
    The infant oft by her was fed;
    She soothed their pain with precious care,
    And breathed for you the mother's prayer

    Notes 
    • Her 1851 census entry shows she entered the province in 1807. This fits because the "Journal of the Society for Army Historical Research" confirms that her fathers' Tenth Royal Veteran's Battalion was "Formed on 25th December, 1806, for service in North America." It contains "volunteers from existing Veteran battalions, of discharged men from other regiments who were fit for garrison duty, or time-expired men who wished to re-enlist into this battalion." They were stationed in "Quebec, 1807." Survived her husband, living with her son's family until after the 1871 census. [Mori Hillman, 2 Mar 2003.]
