      Her name is Anne Donaldson, and she married Robt Debutts. As you can see from this Deed of Gift, from Anne's husband to their son John Donaldson Debutts, Anne died when the baby was barely 3 weeks old. And Robt didn't die to long after her...but he had remarried to Abigail White.

      Page 371. Deed of Gift, recorded at the request of Thomas
      Stoddert. Whereas in all appearance, my wife Anne DeButts,
      is now in a very weak and languishing condition, and is
      likely to leave behind her my son, John Donaldson Debutts,
      her only child, not 3 weeks old, to manifest my tender
      affection to her and her dear child, I hereby give to my sd
      son, my dwelling plantation called Abbins Choice, containing
      200 acres of land, with all the improvements, and everything
      given and delivered to his mother, my wife, by his
      grandfather, Mr. John Donaldson, after my death. I further
      oblige myself to make good and lawful deeds for the same,
      when demanded, under the penalty of 500 sterling. Signed-
      Mar 23, 1746/47 - Robt. De Butts. Wit - R. Cooke, Baptist
