Notes Continued living in Leeds for a time after her husband's death: 1871 Census shows her as a housekeeper in her son Solomon's home. Possibly died at the home of her daughter Mary, who was living in Ilkley in 1881, and may have been living there herself by then. Her death was notified by Mary's daughter Fanny, who was then living in Otley, WRY. There was a memorial to her at Westfield Independent Chapel (now URC), Wyke, but this has now been removed.
