Obituary of Martha Jane Bryant Powell

Dead At Age of 92 Years (9-7-1933)

Lewisburg, Tenn, Aug 31
Mrs. Martha Bryant Powell was born Aug 5, 1841 and died Aug 22, 1933, at the age of ninety-two

She was married at an early age to Barton Powell and ten children were born to this union, eight daughters and two sons.

She joined the Cumberland Presbyterian Church at the age of 39, and lived a true Christian life until death. Our loss is her gain. During her illness she said that old song "One by one we'll all be gathered home," was so true.

The funeral services were conducted at the graveyard by Rev. Ira Jones and Rev. Blakely. Beautiful songs were rendered by members of the C.P. Church.

The floral offerings that were sent by her many friends were beautiful.
