PEYTON, ElizabethDied in Huntington, sister Elizabeth Peyton, aged seventy five years. She was the widow of Harrison Peyton, one of Cabell County's best citizens, who preceded her to the grave but a little over one year. Both were members of the Enon Baptist Church where they lived for a number of years, always faithful. Sister Peyton was visiting her daughter, the widow Beckett, who lives in Huntington, when the fatal attack came. Faithful hands administered to her wants but they were too weak to deliver her from that dreaded enemy and on the evening of the fifth of November she passed away, and went to join her husband in the Glory Land. She expressed a willingness to go, assuring her weeping friends that all was well with her soul, leaving a kind "good-bye" for her absent friends, and requested that they should not weep for her. Her body was brought by rail to Ona, and from thence eight miles through the county in sight of her old home where she had spent the greater part of her life. Her remains were laid to rest beside her husband, where they await the resurrection morning.
  Oh how sweet it will be in that beautiful land,
    So free from all sorrow and pain:
With songs on our lips and with harps to our hands,
    To meet one another again.
  B.F. Morris, Salt Rock, W.Va. -Unk newspaper, d. 5 November 1900
