About Elizabeth Ramsey

It is a tradition but fully believed by their son Reynolds that on their passage across the Atlantic the mother fell overboard and was drowned. Her body could be seen floating on the sea some time after the accident, being buoyed above the waves by the stuffed or quilted dresses which ladies wore at that early period in the high latitude from which they came.
