A Tribute of Respect
The dark angel of death came to our community and claimed for its
victim, Mrs. Martha Lucy Johnson, living two miles north of
Bertram, Burnet Co, Texas.
She was born Sept 23, 1857. Her maiden name was Hall. She
departed this life Jan. 22, 1902, leaving a large family of children
and a husband to mourn their loss. Her babe, a fine pretty boy, only
two months old, died on the next Wednesday, only one short week and
her babe joined her in heaven. Sister Johnson was a faithful
Christian, a loving wife and a very devoted mother. But she and the
little babe are gone to live with the Angels.
May God's blessings rest upon the husband and children. Oh, may
they live so that they may meet mother and those gone before and be
an unbroken family on the Evergreen shore.
