Death of Mrs. Dwelle.

On Wednesday evening of last week Mrs. Ella R. Dwelle, who recently moved to Cartersville from Barnesville, died at her home on Erwin street.

Mrs. Dwelle had been in declining health for several years, and for the past few months she had been confined to her bed. She was extremely low while in Barnesville and thinking that a change would be beneficial, she was brought to Cartersville on a cot. She seemed to improve for a time, but disease had made such inroads upon her system that she finally expired as above related.

Mrs. Dwelle was the eldest daughter of Dr. and Mrs. S. F. Stephens, and spent her childhood at the old homestead near Stilesboro. She was married in 1874 to Edward Dwelle, of Savannah, and resided in that city up to two years ago, when she moved to Atlanta, then to Barnesville, and recently Cartersville. She leaves six children, the youngest being five years old. She also leaves her mother, Mrs. Stephens, two sisters, Mrs. J. P. Anderson and Mrs. W. H. Milner, and two brothers, Messrs. John and Frank Stephens. She was in her 44 th year.

The funeral services were held at the house on Thursday evening by Dr. Patterson, of the Baptist church, of which she was a consistent member and her remains were carried to Savannah, where they were laid to rest by the side of her husband who preceded her to the grave four years ago.

The Savannah Morning News contains the following notice of the funeral in that city:

“The funeral obsequies of Mrs. Ell R. Dwelle, relict of the late Edward Dwelle, were held at the Duffy street Baptist church, rev. T. J. Shipman officiating, yesterday afternoon, and were largely attended by relatives and friends. The pallbearers were: Dr. W. H. Elliott, D. Hopps, T. E. Bessellieu and Messrs. E. A. Cutts, W. G. Cann, G. .W. Haupt, L. Kennedy and J. T. Wells. The interment was in Laurel Grove Cemetery.”
