You can find a bit of information on her in "Historical Sketches of Sumter County: Its Birth and Growth" by Cassie Nicholes. According to the book, She and her husband fled the French Revolution to the US. Their daughter, Mary Magdelene Hortense DeLorme, was almost buried at sea, having nearly died of smallpox. Fortunately, her father discovered a faint sign of life in the child, just before burial, while he was embracing her one final time. She fully recovered, later marrying John Haynesworth.

A posting on the net has her maiden name as Marie Magdelene Hortensia Delaramee, born March 03, 1762, in Caen, France, mother of 11 children, and death occurring in Texas in 1841. Also, that she married John Francis Delorme in Charleston, SC in 1840. I could only guess as to why they would have a wedding ceremony at this late date in life.
