A Very Old Lady.
Mrs. Francis Dobbs Dies in This City at Age 94.

Mrs. Francis Dobbs died at the home of her granddaughter, Miss Anna Dobbs, on Church street, on Tuesday.

Mrs. Dobbs had reached the advanced age of 94 years and on July 5th next would have been 95 had she lived. She has long been known as a person of remarkable vitality, scarcely knowing what an ailment was until about a year ago she began to show the feeble stage that comes of old age, and gradually grew weaker to the end.

She was the wife of Mr. Asa Dobbs, who moved from Elbert to Cobb and then to this county, about 60 years ago.  Mr. Dobbs died about 40 years ago.  She had only two children, William and John M. Dobbs, both of whom are dead, the latter died a few years ago.  A number of her grandchildren survive her.  They are: John H. Dobbs and Mrs. T. A. Haney, children of Mr. William Dobbs, W. G., J. M., C. C. Dobbs; Mrs. Todd, Rockmart; Miss Anna and Mr. John A. Dobbs.

For a number of years Mrs. Dobbs has lived with her grandchildren here, and her presence has ever been a comfort to them.  She was kind and indulgent always and a counselor wise and loving.  She was a member of the Baptist church for many long years.

Her funeral occurred yesterday from the home, the services being conducted by Rev. W. R. Branham.
