    • From Marshall, Charlotte Thomas. Oconee Hill Cemetery of Athens, Georgia, Volume I. Athens, GA: Athens Historical Society, 2009.

      Thornton, Mrs. Lucy d. 7 Jul 1840 [Lucy Battaile, b. 24 Oct 1767, w/o Boswell Thornton, charter member of Athens Baptist Church; sister of Sarah Ryng (Battaile) Rootes & aunt of Sarah (Rootes) Cobb & Martha (Rootes) Jackson, WH73. Southern Banner, 10 Jul 1840: died at the residence of Col. John A. Cobb in 71st yr. of her age; for many years an exemplary member of the Baptist church and with true devotedness of heart to her God; tenderness of feeling seldom equaled; a paralytic affliction for the last 8 or 9 yrs. deprived her of most of her physical and mental powers and at length confined her entirely to her bed; to see "the silver cord loosed" and the spirit freed to take its upward flight was a subject of grateful praise to him who had bought her with his blood and had prepared for her "a house not made with hands, eternal in the Heavens."]
