Oldest Living Revolutionary Widows

As of June 30, 1898 five women appeared on the pension rolls as widows of Revolutionary War soldiers.
Esther Damon of Plymouth Union, Vermont age 84
Nancy Jones of Jonesboro, Tennessee age 84
Rebecca Mayo of Newbern, Virginia age 85
Mary Snead of Parksley, Virginia age 82
Nancy Weatherman of Lineback, Tennessee age 88

I've searched for years for images of these women. Esther Damon appears in volume 1 of the Last Muster Series and I'm aware of newspaper photos of Rebecca Mayo, but photos of the other women may not exist.
