I can only imagine the grief she had to deal with in her young life losing her daughter who only lived for one day followed by the death of her first husband Brigadier General John Hunt Morgan then after marrying her second husband his death right before her own death at age 47. To me she had a lot to deal with so much grief at a young age.
