Old City Cemetery, Galena, Illinois.
My Soul My Body I Will Trust With Him Who Numbers Every Dust
UPDATE: I wasn’t able to find anything about Lucy, other than yes, she was 15 when she died in 1844, but I did look up her parents, Edwin and Louisa. I found mention of an Edwin, age 50, and Louisa, age 50 on the 1850 census for Galena. They are listed with an Enos Ripley, as well. But I don’t know if these are her parents.
There is an Edwin and Louisa who show up on the 1870 census for Galena, as E.C. Ripley, age 38, employed as a cashier and Louisa Ripley, age 36, with a son, Edwin, age 3.
