Death of an Estimable Lady.

Our community was shocked on Sunday morning last at the reception of the news of the death of Mrs. Elizabeth Chapman, the devoted wife of our fellow townsman, Mr. Lyman A. Chapman, which occurred at her residence at 4 o’clock a. m. She died in child birth. Mr. Chapman was absent at his work in Gadsden, Ala., and was immediately telegraphed for. He had already started home and arrived on the 11 o’clock morning passenger. Mrs. Chapman was the daughter of Mr. Wm. Headden, of Cassville, and the sister of Rev. R. B. Headden and Mr. Walter Headden, of this place. She was about 34 years of age, and besides her fond husband and relatives, leaves three or four little children. Her remains were interred at Cassville Monday afternoon, Rev. Dr. DeVotie officiating.

An excerpt: “To her husband who had cherished and loved her so faithfully for thirteen years to a day, (the day of her death was the anniversary of her marriage) she was dearer and more of a necessity to his life than ever.”
