An article relating the death of Lucy's father, Benjamin IV, in a Lightning Strike at Berkeley also stated that "his two youngest daughters" were also killed at the same time. Lucy's sister, Hannah, did die, but Lucy herself survived the strike and went on to live a full life. She was a Loyalist and after the Revolution she moved to London.
