Mrs. Eliza Kate Daves.
Aged and Estimable Lady Dies at Home of Her Son.

Mrs. Eliza Kate Daves died at the home of her son Prof. W. W. Daves, in this city, last Friday morning. She had been sick for quite awhile, and was with her son, Mr. James Daves, in Chicago, when, it being thought that a change might benefit her, she was brought to Cartersville, only a week before her death.  Mrs. Daves was the widow of the late Rev. Joel T. Daves, Sr., a well known strong preacher of the Methodist church, and was in her seventieth year, being born in Bostrop, La., in 1840.  Her husband died in Atlanta, in 1897, after a forty years service to his church.

Mrs. Daves leaves three sons, Prof. W. W. Daves, of this city; Rev. Joel T. Daves, of Atlanta, presiding elder of the Atlanta district, North Georgia Conference; Mr. James P. Daves, late of Chicago but now of New York and with the Monarch Typewriter Co.

The funeral occurred from the home Sunday afternoon at 3 o’clock, rev. Henry B. Mays conducting the funeral service.  Among those from other points attending the funeral were Col. C. W. Smith, Mr. Armenius Wright; Rev. Joel T. Daves, of Atlanta; Mrs. George Mell and daughters, of Athens and Mr. J. P. Daves, of New York.  The burial was at Oak Hill.
