Deceased was the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. James Johnson and was born in

of this city, and Mrs. Prudence Fry, of Denver, Colo.

death lived a devoted Christian life. While on her way to attend one of the meetings 
of the M. E. conference during the pastorate of the late Rev. J. B. Thompson in this 
city, seven or eight years ago, she had the misfortune to fall on the board sidewalk 
ink the neighborhood of her home and injured herself quite severely. She never entirely 
recovered from the effects of this accident and during the greater part of the past winter 
was confined to the house by lameness and the infimities of age. 

Of the 13 children in her father's family the only survivors since the death of Mrs. Satterfield 
are Wm. Fletcher and Abe Johnson and Mrs. Jane Armour. 

Funeral services will be held, under the ministration of Rev. J. F. Harmon, at the late
