About Jean Wood (Moncure)

Jean (Moncure) Wood, in her sphere, was quite as distinguished as was her husband.

"Her manners were peculiarly dignified and graceful, her politeness was genuine and unaffected. She possessed uncommon fluency, had a ready and brilliant wit, and a rich imagination. These qualities fitted her to shine in the most brilliant circles, and made her society attractive to both the aged and the young."

She was gifted with poetic and musical talents. Some of her poems are preserved in "The Southern Literary Messenger", and she left in manuscript, a volume of unpublished poems and sketches. She founded, and, until her death, was president of a society for the assistance of widows and children - "The Female Humane Society of Richmond", incorporated by the Legislature, 1811. Her grave is in the Robinson Cemetery in Byrd Park, Richmond, VA.

Her only child died young.
