Is anyone able to find any death record or info for Deborah Barnes Lucas, born April 3, 1785 in Plymouth?

+4 votes
Her parents were Capt. Corbin Barnes and Mary Phinney, both of Plymouth. I know she died before 1832, as her husband Alden Lucas remarried in that year. But I cannot find any information about her death. I have emailed the clerk of Plymouth, Massachusetts, and they do not have her death record. Her husband, Alden Lucas, and her daughter, Elizabeth Lucas Gifford, are buried in New Bedford (I believe because Elizabeth moved to New Bedford as that was where her husband, John A. Gifford, was from). But Deborah Barnes doesn't seem to be buried there either (which actually makes sense, as Alden remarried and lived for many more years). Both Deborah and Alden are Mayflower descendants -- Deborah is a Warren descendant and Alden is a Chilton descendant among others.

Are you certain about that birth date -- or could it be the date of a baptism at, say, age about 8?  Because here's an item from NEHGS (subscription required) -- she's not named, and she's shown as age 53 (not 45), but this would seem the probable record:

Plymouth, MA: First Church Records, 1620-1859 from the Plymouth Church Records 1620-1859. CD-ROM. Boston, Mass.: New England Historic Genealogical Society; Colonial Society of Massachusetts, c2003. (Online database., New England Historic Genealogical Society, 2008.)


In case you can't access it, here's the summary:

Name     Wife of Alden LUCAS
Death     1830
Location     Massachusetts, United States
Original Text    
Record Type     Death
Page     751

The actual entry reads, "June 11  Alden Lucas' wife aged 53".

The description of the source reads,
"The contents of this database were originally published by NEHGS and the Colonial Society of Massachusetts in CD-ROM format in 2003.

"From the introduction to the CD-ROM:
'Originally published in 1920 as volumes twenty-two and twenty three in the Publications of the Colonial Society of Massachusetts series, Plymouth Church Records 1620-1859 is one of the most informative sources about the members of the First Church of Plymouth from the arrival of the Mayflower to the brink of the Civil War.'

I saw your question, yesterday, and added to your profiles for Deborah and Alden, today ... before I saw additional answers.  Someone else found that Deborah (Barnes) Lucas died in 1830, answering your original question.  I found the marriage records for Alden's second wife, also named Deborah and added the information that I found to the profiles.
