  • Notes 
    • Description: From Mary E. Oliver Wood's Obit:
      IN MEMORIAM
      Mrs. Mary E. Wood was born April 22 1858 and died September 16th, 1880, being twenty-two years, four months and twenty-four days old.
      The deceased was married to Mr.______Wood November 11, 1879, ten months and five days embracing the period of her married life.
      Mary professed faith in Jesus and joined the Academy Baptist church in her fourteenth year, and lived a pious and devoted life.
      Possessed of good health and a strong constitution, she bade fair to live a good old age; but, alas! she died before she had reached the prime of life, reminding us of the truth of the words, "In an hour when ye think not the son of man cometh."
      A long train of mouners followed her to the Academy cemetery, where her funeral was preached by Rev. A. J. Kelly.
      She leaves an infant that can never realize the endearing relations of parent and child. She also leaves a husband and a very large circle of affectionate relatives and many friends to mourn over her early and sudden departure from their midst. A.J. K.

      (Mary E. Wood was the former Mary E. Oliver, daughter of James C. and Susan Pinson Oliver. I don't know why her husband's name is left blank but by the marriage records his name was S. M. Wood and by the 1880 census it appears as Simuel M. Wood.
