Mrs. R. M. Dowdell Dead.

An Estimable Lady Passes Away This Morning.

Atlanta Journal.

Mrs. R. M. Dowdell, after an illness of three weeks, died at her home, 26 East Ellis street, at an early hour this morning. Mrs. Dowdell contracted la grippe about three weeks ago and had nearly recovered when she had a relapse of the same malady, which a few days ago terminated in pneumonia.

Mrs. Dowdell moved to this city from Tuskegee, Ala., about ten years ago and has since resided here. She was a consistent church member, being a member of the Trinity Methodist church of this city. In her sad bereavement she leaves one child, a young lady of 15, to mourn her loss. Her body will be taken to Carterville tomorrow morning for interment.

At the bedside of the dying one were her father and mother, Mr. and Mrs. R. W. Jones, of Summerville, Ga., her sisters, Mrs. L. S. Munford, of Cartersville, Ga.; Mrs. John Cleghorn, of Summerville, Ga., and Mrs. Wardlaw, of Rome, and her brother, Mr. T. R. Jones, of Cartersville.

The remains reached Cartersville Saturday evening on the Rome express, and were conveyed to the residence of Mr. L. S. Munford, where they remained until Sunday morning, when the burial took place at Oak Hill cemetery, by the side of her brother, Mr. John R. Jones. The funeral service was conducted by Rev. B. P. Allen, pastor of the Methodist church, of this city.
