Death of Mrs. Brisentine.
Mother of Mr. L. P. Brisentine Dies in Atlanta.

Mrs. Mary Brisentine, mother of Mr. L. P. Brisentine, of this city, died at the home of her daughter, Mrs. B. T. Durham, in Atlanta, on Tuesday evening at two o’clock.

Mrs. Brisentine has made her home with her son in this city for the past two years until last January, when she went to Atlanta to visit her daughter.  She had a severe fall about four years ago, and has not been able to walk since that accident.

She was born in North Carolina on October 24th, 1809, and would have been ninety-one years old had she lived until next October.  She was the mother of twelve children, seven of whom survive her, and Mr. L. P. Brisentine is the youngest child.

She was a resident of Floyd county for forty years, having moved there from North Carolina when she was first married, and her husband died at their home in that county in 1865.

She was a consistent member of the Baptist church which she joined when quite young.  Her remains were taken to Conyers, Ga., and laid to rest by the side of her relatives on Wednesday morning.
