Death of Mrs. Hargis.

Mrs. Lucy Hargis departed this life at the residence of her son, J. T. Hargis, in Kingston, on January 29th, 1887. Another kind mother, good neighbor and Godly woman has been called to her reward above, for the Master hath said, “Enter thou into the joy of the Lord.” She moved to Cass county, now Bartow, with her husband, Milton Hargis, from Pearson county, N. C., in the year 1838. In 1840 settling on the homestead now owned by her son, Capt. R. R. Hargis, near Cass Station, at which the children were raised. The many days of their childhood were there spent and finally the same soil has received the remains of the beloved mother, the family graveyard being there located. It was an affecting scene to see the children and grandchildren reassembled there to bury the mother. Mrs. Hargis united with Nancy’s Creek Baptist church in 1858, and was baptized by Professor Roberts, who was connected with the college at Cassville. Up to about five years ago she was a remarkably stout woman, when she was stricken with paralysis. Since that time she has been a sufferer. She wanted to die and be at rest. While in health she was genial in disposition and faithful in attendance upon her church services. Had she lived until the tenth of March she would have been seventy years old. She passed away peacefully and quietly, and now is beyond the reach of suffering and tears. Let us try to meet her above. --- G. S. T.

Mrs. Hargis died at the home of her son, J. F. Hargis, in Kingston, on the night of the 30th of January. She had been greatly afflicted for several years, but her death was a shock to the community. A good mother in Israel has fallen. Her remains were carried to the old family graveyard near Cass Station on the old homestead, owned by her son R. R. Hargis. All her children were present at the funeral services, conducted by Rev. G. S. Tumlin of Marietta.
