Her worsening relationship with her father and fears that she might be turning into her mother, led to what I suspect was suicide. Certainly her life fell apart in April 1848 in so many ways that if you shoehorned them into a novel you simply wouldn't believe it. Encountering my great-great-great-aunt's skeleton was an extraordinary moment. The curvature of the spine was evident, and, hauntingly, her skull had tipped back revealing her teeth.”.

She continued taking laudanum and, I believe it affected her mind. Her worsening relationship with her father and fears that she might be turning into her mother, led to what I suspect was suicide. Certainly her life fell apart in April 1848 in so many ways that if you shoehorned them into a novel you simply wouldn't believe it. Encountering my great-great-great-aunt's skeleton was an extraordinary moment. The curvature of the spine was evident, and, hauntingly, her skull had tipped back revealing her teeth.

The circumstances of her life in those final weeks were devastating. Her final words in her journal suggest she lost the will to live and that she'd rather be with her God.
