She may have been Judith Louisa ! Women's names were not of much consequence in those days. After having, in the good old way, bequeathed his soul to God who gave it, and his body to the earth out of which it was taken, he proceeds:-- In the first place, as to debts, thank God, I owe none, and therefore shall give my executors but little trouble on that score.

I give my son Peter a hornbook — for I am afraid he will always be a dunce. General Horry goes on to say that Peter was so stunned by this squib that he instantly quit his raccoon hunting by night and betook himself to reading, and soon became a very sensible and charming young man. Gabriel Marion, the eldest son of Benjamin, married a young woman, also of Huguenot blood, Charlotte Cordes or Corday, said to have been a relative of the other Charlotte Corday, the heroine of the French Revolution.
