    • Obit Richmond Enquirer, Aug 14, 1827:

      On the 7th instance, in the 56th year of her age, in Cabin Point, after 17 days of severe indisposition, Mrs. Mary Sledge, consort of Mr. Amos Sledge, a respectable merchant of that place and daughter of Mr. Richard Sledge. By the bereavement of this amiable lady the loss experienced by her husband and seven children, together with her neighbors, numerous circumstances and servants, can never be obliterated; her character was duly appreciated by all those who were in possession of an acquaintance with her, and whose name will always be cherished and expected. To say she lived as becomes a woman to live is the most correct eulogy upon her worth and virtue. Alas! she is no more and why should we mourn? Though her condition is changed her virtuous mind remains unaltered. Therefore, affectionate husband & dutiful children, do not lament at this premature separation, though the affliction is great. Her bark is destined to an eternal harbour, whither it resistable time is rapidly hurrying all.
    Notes 
    • He married 1st Mary Polly Pattishall, who apparently died leaving no issue. [1]
