About Rebecca Healy Davis

Maiden name was also Davis. http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=51658554 : from "History of the town of Montpelier": By Daniel Pierce Thompson 1860 Rebecce Davis. The efficient help-meet of the energetic man whose life and character we have been briefly sketching, is most surely deserving of a separate mention to be passed down to the posterity of the first settlers of Montpelier, with the sketch of her husband. She was born in Oxford, Massachusetts, in the year 1743, married about the year 1765, and died on the 25th of February, 1828. She lies buried by the side of her husband, in this village, where she peacefully passed the last as well as the middle portion of her useful and exemplary life. She early united with the Congregational Church after it was established in this village, and had long been considered a Christian in works, as well as faith, which would have well warranted an earlier public profession of religion. Unusually comely in person, with a sweet smile ever on her lips, kind in disposition, intelligent and discreet, she was the never failing friend of the needy and distressed, the judicious adviser of the young, and the universal object of the love and respect of all classes of the people of the settlement. Of the more than half score of her contemporaries in this town of whom we have made enquiries respecting her character, all most cordially united in affirming, in substance, what we will only quote as the warmly expressed words of one of them: "Mrs. Colonel Davis was one of the best, the very best, women in the whole world!" Indeed she must have truly been a mother in the early Montpelier Isreal, and she has left behind her a name bright with blessed memories.
