      ---------------------------------------------------

      The following Memoriam is from "The Jackson Herald" dated September 24, 1880:

      Mrs. Mary E. Wood was born April 22d, 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 mourners 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.
