Mrs. Annie Banton.
Estimable Lady Dies After Several weeks Illness.

Mrs. Annie Banton died on Saturday last at 3:30 o’clock in the afternoon.  Though she had been ill for several weeks, her death was a surprise, as well as it was a great shock to the community.

Mrs. Annie Hortense Banton was the only daughter of Matthew Rollin and Mary Elizabeth Stansell.  She was born November 6, 1866, and was therefore in her 34th year when she died.  With twenty four others she joined the Presbyterian church in October, 1883.  She has been a consistent, dutiful member of that church ever since.  On October 4, 1893, she was married to Mr. John R. Banton.  Of this union there were three children, all of whom, with the husband, survive her.  Her mother and two brothers, Wallace and Rollin, who have homes in distant cities, share with them the loss of a loved and loving relative and her many friends extend their sympathies to these in their bereavement.  Mrs. Banton was a most estimable lady, even tempered kind and amiable.  As wife and mother she was devoted, indulgent and tender, and as a friend she was obliging, consistent, considerate and sincere.  Her death is a great loss in the community.

The funeral took place from the Presbyterian church Monday.  The services were conducted by Rev. E. M. Craig, assisted by Rev. A. W. Bealer.  Mrs. Aubrey presided at the organ.  Mrs. Cunyus and the Messrs. Calhoun sang sweetly a touching selection.  The services were very impressive and were attended by a large gathering.  The remains were interred at Oak Hill.
