Miss Minnie Callahan

American Courant, Cartersville, GA January 19, 1896
Transcribed and submitted by: 

Miss Minnie Callahan.

This young lady died at the home of her parents, Mr. and Mrs. John W. Callahan, at their home on Douglas street, on Friday last. She had been sick for some time but her symptoms only became alarming when she took her bed from weakness a week or so before she died. She bore her afflictions with a resignation and a fortitude that were remarkable and which evinced as was also shown by her talk and actions that she was not afraid to die, but awaited the end calmly.

Miss Minnie was a most estimable young lady, the idol of her parents, and possessed the friendship of all who knew her. She was a pupil regularly of the Baptist Sunday school, and always took a smart interest in the school’s work and affairs.

Her funeral was conducted from the home, Rev. W. H. Patterson, pastor of the Baptist church, officiating. Her remains were interred at Oak Hill cemetery.

Miss Minnie leaves besides her father and mother, two brothers, Messrs. Charles and Robert Callahan, all of whom mourn deeply her loss and will miss her love and sweet refining influence in the home circle.
