Posts like this are why I visit. She died in childbirth, I don't know why that makes me sad. Perhaps because she was so young (but actually "old" for then?)

No, she died young. It was very sad, but common enough at the time. People who didn't either die before the age of three or during childbirth had a pretty good chance of living to old age.

True - I think it made me sad to think she had conquered so much only to have her life end so young. Just thinking about what else she could have accomplished....

If she was born around 1753 and died in 1784, that would make her about thirty, not fifty.
