Stephen, Virginia (1803–1837)

It is with extreme pain that we have to announce the death of Mrs. Alfred [Virginia]  Stephen, the Lady of Mr. Attorney General Stephen. She departed this life on Monday morning last, at six o'clock, having a few days previously giving premature birth to a daughter, which did not survive two days. Her loss will long be deplored by all who knew her.
