Death of Mrs. Brevard.
A Member of One of the Pioneer Families of Cartersville.

The death of Mrs. Candace Brevard occurred Monday, at the home of her son, Mr. Albert Brevard.  She was 79 years of age and had been in feeble health for a number of years.

Mrs. Brevard was born in DeKalb county, being the daughter of Rev. Wm. Callahan, a much beloved Baptist preacher who died a few years after the war.  She was a brother (sic) of the late Mr. Troup Callahan, and Mr. John Callahan. The latter survives her and is the only one who remains of the original Callahan family who were among the pioneers of Cartersville, having settled at old Birmingham, the village near the river which passed away long years ago, and which formed the original nucleus for Cartersville’s growth into a town.

Mrs. Brevard was the widow of the late David Lafayette Brevard, who lived for years at Ashville, N. C., but died at Columbia, S. C.  She is survived by a son and a daughter, Mr. Albert Brevard and Miss Neptune Brevard.

The funeral was from the home Tuesday, the services being conducted by Rev. Geo. W. Duval.
