Tombstone Tuesday: Lydia Twycross Goodwin


Lydia Twycross

Oct. 22, 1809
Feb. 25, 1903

Asleep in Jesus

(top of the stone says “Grandma”)

Lydia is the wife of David Speare Goodwin, whose headstone we saw last week.  She is the daughter of Stephen Nymphas Twycross and Lydia Johnson.  At age 91, she appears with her daughter Mary in California in the 1900 census.  I have not found her actual death record, although her date of death is on her husband’s War of 1812 Pension Application.
