About Lucy Frances Tapscott (Wood)
Birth: Dec. 22, 1816
w/o Robert Francis Tapscott, reportedly 6th & last known child born to father, James Tapscott and 1st wife Susannah Howard Baker.
Birth: 10th of twelve known children in Frederick county, Virginia, at Audley Plantation. (became Clarke county MAR 1836, birth date from Wood family Bibles)
Lucy is found on some rootsweb worldconnect trees and elsewhere, with INCORRECT birth, death dates, and parents, HOWEVER, family Bibles of father Alexander and older brother Alexander, jr have her as 10th known born, supported by several Federal census of her and her family. Documented to us is that NO Lucy F (Wood) Tapscott is recorded buried at Old Chapel cemetery, nor do records reveal she and/or husband members ... "in the Cunningham Parish Register as being associated with the Millwood church. There is no obit for him-just a notice that Sheriff John T. Crow is the administrator of his estate."
Census: 1850, Lucy's mother, Elizabeth (Kirk) Wood (1777-1853), widow of Alexander Wood (1766-1830), is in her household (possibly where her mother died in 1853). Next household is Lucy's older brother, William Wood, who is housing her youngest brother James T (Thomas), wife and their three kids.
Census: 1880, Lucy found in household of second known son Henry as "house keeper", likely where she passed away (?).
Census: 1880, Beverly Alexander, her sixth known born, is in housedhold of Lucy's nephew, CSA veteran officer, Harvey Kemp Wood of Bates county, Missouri(ah). Beverly married a girl in neighboring Cass county, in her father's home, was farming in both Kansas & Missouri before moving to California.
Death: Following 1880 census, when in second known born son Henry's household, as widow of Robert Francis Tapscott. No stone marks her gravesite HOWEVER, it seems reasonable (?) to assume she's buried in Old Chapel cemetery where; her mother, he older brother & wife, her older sister & husband are all interred and where she buried her husband Robert F Tapscott, but NO record of such is found.
