We are again called upon to chronicle the death of two more of our esteemed county citizens.

Mrs. TRIPPE, wife of the late lamented Judge Turner R. Trippe, of this county, departed this life at the residence of her son-in-law, Col. Abda Johnson, in this city, on Tuesday evening last.  Mrs. Trippe was a most estimable lady.  Full of years and good fruits, she has been gathered to her father above.

[Line obscured by fold.] have been called upon to cross the flood, and, we trust, are now resting under the shade of the tree of life in the garden of the just.  Both leave grief-stricken families, and many sorrowing friends, to mourn their loss.  May God temper the winds to the shorn lambs.

[The other death referred to is Major George Dent--separate article.]

Mrs. MARY ANN ELIZABETH, relict of Hon. Turner H. TRIPPE, died in Cartersville, Ga., on the 13th day of May last, aged 65 years.  She was born in Putnam county, Ga., and married in 1824, and moved to Clarksville, Ga., in 1827, and from thence to Cassville in 1839.  She joined the Methodist Church in her youth—about in her 12th year.  She was firm and consistent in her personal piety—manifesting always an interest in all religious or benevolent works.  In the comparative infancy and weakness of the church in this section, she gave it valuable moral and material aid.  The ministers of religion found at her home a bounteous hospitality and edifying religious intercourse.  She was a great sufferer for the last year or two; but her faith, though occasionally clouded, supported and cheered her to the end.  Often did she express her desire “to depart and be with Jesus.”  Her only anxiety was for the conversion of her children and grandchildren.  As she had frequently foretold, her departure was as sudden as was that of her estimable husband some years previously,  So swift was the stroke, that it was probable she never felt a pang.  One instant here—the next in Heaven.  Her remains were interred in the Cassville cemetery, by the side of her husband. – L. J. D.
