About Lucy Tabb

 Mrs. Lucy Cary, the widow of Dudley Cary, of Gloucester, Va., was among the earleiest settlers of Athens [, Georgia]. She was such a lady as we may suppose Mary Washington to have been. She knew General Washington and his wife well as well as most other distinguished Virginians in her young days. Her manners were formed from the best models of Virginia society - gentle, courteous, dignified, cheerful - as kind to one of her slaves as to a white person of the same age; and the result was that her slaves not only loved and respected her but prided themselves in belonging to an old Virginia family.
