Greenway, Mary (?–1832)

Died—On Wednesday night, at her Residence in George-street, after a lingering illness, Mrs. Greenway, deeply regretted by her friends. Mrs. Greenway, having educated a great number of the ladies of the Colony, now at the head of families, was generally known, and as universally beloved. Her accomplishments were considerable; but they were equalled, if not excelled, by her fine sentiment and excellent principles, which rendered her society an acquisition to all who had the opportunity of enjoying it.
