Death of Mrs. Hood.

An Old Esteemed Lady Dies at Her Home, Near the City.

Mrs. Rebecca Hood died at her home, near the city, on Tuesday night. She had been in bad health for several years past, and her afflictions several months ago confined her to her bed from which she never arose.

Mrs. Hood, and her husband, Mr. John Hood, who died many years ago, were among the earliest settlers of the county, coming here from South Carolina before the Indians departed.

She was a member of the Presbyterian church and was a pious, kind-hearted good woman—a true and loving mother to her children, a considerate agreeable neighbor, always to those who lived near her, and was universally beloved by all who knew her.

Two of her children survive her, Mrs. Z. T. Hannon and Miss Kate Hood.

Her funeral will take place from the Presbyterian church this evening at 2 o’clock. Rev. John T. Norris will conduct the services.
