348. LUCY ELEANOR HANSBROUGH: (295 Joseph) Born at "Salubria," Culpeper, Sunday, June 6, 1813; died at the residence of her first-born (Dabney) in Washington, D. C., December 8, 1880. Although she received the name "Lucy Eleanor," she was always called "Lucy Ellen." Only two Hansbrough portraits are known to be in existence, one of them being that of Lucy Ellen as a girl of about seven. The Hansbroughs were all fond of high living, and she, too, set a beautiful and luxurious table after she was established in a home of her own. In 1865, when her brother-in-law, Matthew Fontaine Maury was in Mexico, where he had been invited by Emperor Maximilian to take charge of the Royal Observatory in his capital, he wrote to his wife the day after he had dined with the Emperor and Empress Carlotta, in the Castle of Chapultepec, that "the dinner — excepting the wines, the number of servants, and the liveries — reminded me very much of those Lucy Ellen used to give us in our summer visits to Fredericksburg." Her husband in his diary speaks of "what a wonderful wife I have and how much to be thankful to God for, and for four, nay five, beautiful women" - his wife and four of his daughters - and they were beautiful women, two of them outstanding beauties- Parker and Molly. On November 25, 1830, she was married by Rev. J. W. Woodville, rector of St. Mark's Parish, Culpeper, at "Salubria," to Dr. Brodie Strachan Herndon, of Fredericksburg. Dr. Herndon, who was born in Fredericksburg on July 7, 1810, was a graduate in medicine from the University of Maryland, Baltimore, and received his degree of M. D. at the early age of 20. He first settled in Culpeper Court House, where he remained for 10 years; removing to his native town, where he practiced his profession until the outbreak of the Civil War, when he was appointed a surgeon in the Confederate Army in charge of hospitals in Richmond, 1861-65. After the close of the war, he returned to Fredericksburg where he remained for thre years. At the solicitation of his four daughters, who had married Savanah men, he moved to that city, where he practiced his profession until a few years before his death which occurred at the residence of his son, Dabney, in Washington, D. C., Saturday, August 7, 1886. On November 25, 1880, Dr. and Mrs. Herndon celebrated their golden wedding anniversary at the residence of their son, Dabney, by the administration of Holy Communion at the bedside of Mrs. Herndon, who died two weeks later. Dr. and Mrs. Herndon had nine children.
