Died at the residence of her daughter in Zebulon, Mrs. Janie Burgess, Mrs. Eliza Gilreath, widow of the late Jabez K. Gilreath, of Bartow county, this state, March 29, 1901.  Mrs. Gilreath had reached the age of seventy-six and was unusually active for one of her age.  The day before her death she spoke of feeling uncommonly well, and at two o’clock in the morning of her death she was apparently well.  At six o’clock in the morning she was dead.

She was a native of South Carolina, a graduate of a college, at Spartanburg.

At an early age she was married to Jabez K. Gilreath, of Bartow county, Georgia, where she lived until a few months ago.  She was the mother of eleven children, nine of whom survive her.
