We regret to chronicle the death of Mrs. Eugene, wife of Wm. W. Milam, of this place, on Monday morning last, after a few days illness with typhoid fever.  She was carried away in the very prime of life buoyant with hope.

Mrs. Eugenia C. Milam, wife of William W. Milam, died of typhoid fever on the 15th of June, 1869, at Cartersville, Bartow County, Georgia.

She embraced religion in the year 1858, and joined the “Liberty Spring” Presbyterian Church in Lawrence District South Carolina.

A few months preceding her death she had regularly attached herself to the “Friendship” Church at Cartersville, living since devoted to its worship, order and prosperity.  After a few day’s illness the summons came for her to join “a more glorious Church above,” which summons found her spirit ready for that solemn and inevitable event.  For her death had no “sting;” for her it had no “victory,” for she had in the hour of health sought and found one to cheer and comfort her through life—and even in the dark hour of death, that “Comforter” did not depart from her; but illumined the gloom of her most trying hour on earth.  Her spirit, in fond nature lingered on the brink of the river, regretting that her dear husband and child could not fly away with her and be at rest forever.  For she deeply regretted to leave them behind her, here amid the tears and woes of earth.
