On the 21st of August, the Oostanaula Baptist Association convened at this place,  Rev. C. E. Wright was elected moderator, who gave general satisfaction and bids fair to make a good presiding officer,  On the 1st September the Association received the sad intelligence that Mrs. G. D. Harvis had died the day before at Stegall’s Station and her remains would be up on the train that day, and as her husband Rev. G. D. Harvis, was a member of the Association, they adjourned and took charge of the corpse at the depot where the Association formed a procession, marched to the cemetery, where after the usual ceremonies of the church, her body was deposited in the silent tomb.  She left a husband and three small children, father, mother, sister, brother and many friends to mourn her loss.  I am told she died a Christian and left unmistakable evidence of her acceptance with God.  Oh! What great consolation to her weeping friends.
