Mrs. Mary L. Thompson
Died in Jackson, Butts County, Ga. On the 7th ult. Mrs. Mary L. Thompson, daughter of Maj. Tandy W. Key, late of Henry County in the 31 year of her age.
She had been for several years a consistent, and useful member of the Baptist church; of mild and cheerful disposition, she was loved by a wide circle of friends and acquaintances. Her death was sudden, but found her ready for the call, as her previous life attested. She was the mother of 6 children which she has left to the care of a bereft husband, who mourn her loss. She rests from her labors while her works follow her. Her memory is dear to those she left behind. May they cherish and imitate the prious example of her godly life.

Mrs. Mary L. Thompson
Died in Henry County, on the 20th of February, of scarlet fever, Susan Tucker, in the 14th year of her age, daughter of Caroline Tucker. She professed a change of heart, but had never united with the Church. She gave evidence on her death bed that all was yet well, that the merits of a Crucified Lamb were sufficient to cleanse her from all sin. Possessed of a noble, generous heart, she has won for herself the esteem and admiration of many; and tho gone, the memory of Suckey still liveth. Yes, dear companions of by gone years can scarcely realize thy departure so young in years. Sleep on, departed one, till the resurrection morn; then we hope to meet thee around the great white throne to chant unending anthems of praise to Father, Son and Holy Ghost.

Died at the residence of her son J. P. Williams, in Henry County, on the 12th (?) ult., Keziah Williams, a widow lady, in the(73rd-78th) year of her age. She was baptized many years since by Rev. J. W. Calloway at Philadelphia church in the above named county. Since that time, she has lived a consistent member of the Baptist Church. She was a kind and affectionate mother. We trust she has gone to reap the reward of the faithful in Christ Jesus. She bore her affliction with patience, and said on a dying pillow, she was ready and willing to go. May this bereavement be sanctified to the good of her children and friends in general.
