Dicy Whitaker, Great Grandmother to 74, dies, NC, 1883

May 10, 1883 (The Commonwealth, a newspaper of Scotland Neck, NC, 2d page)
[From the exchanges]

Winston Sentinel: Mrs. Dicy Whitaker, who died in Surry county, a short time since, at the age of 87 years, was the mother of 9 children, 45 grand children and 74 great grand children.


[The 1880 census for Surry County shows a Dicy Whitaker who was born about 1794 in North Carolina, and both her parents were from North Carolina. It appears that Dicy Whitaker’s maiden name was Safley, and she married Edmond Whitaker August 9, 1816.]
