Margaret Emma Nowlin

from Patti Bates
Margaret Emma "Maggie" Nowlin was born in 1859 in Maury County, TN and died 17 Feb 1901 in Sherman. I do not know which newspaper ran the following, but I have a copy, full of errors, including spelling of the surname, that reads as follows:

SAD DEATH of Mrs. M. E. Knowlin Yesterday`-- A Double Burial
Yesterday afternoon at her home on North Maxey Street, Mrs. Maggie Emma
Knowlin, wife of Dr. J. E. Knowlin, died. A little infant, born the day before, had already preceeded her and even as the mother breathed her last rested in a
tiny casket in the adjoining room, It was a sad scene, mother and her little one
both dead and a grief-stricken family about their silent forms.The double
burial was at West Hill this morning. Mrs. Knowlin's maiden name was Maggie Emma Turnbow. She was a native of Murray County, Tennessee, and in her forty-second year. In 1870 she was married to Dr. Knowlin. Eleven children have been born to them, of whom six are living to mourn the loss of a devoted Christian mother. At a very tender age the deceased was converted and became a communicant of the Methodist-Episcopal Church South and had been a consistant Christian ever since.The burial services at the home and grave were conducted in accordance with the ritual of the church and officiated at by the Rev. Mr. James Davis of the Willow Street parish. The family came to Sherman (TX) only a few months since from Weatherford but have won their way into the esteem of their new friends and neighbors, whose heartfelt sympathy they have in their hoiur of loss. Mrs. Marks of Weatherford, a sister, and Mr. James Turnbo of Denison, a brother, are here.
