Death of Mrs. Elizabeth Humphey’s.

Death has again invaded the family circle and claimed as its victim, one who has been long and familiarly known by the people of this county.  Aunt “Betsey” Humphreys is no more. – She departed this life in perfect peace, at her home, near this place, on the night of the 11th instant, after a long and distressing illness.  She was the sister of our esteemed fellow-citizen, Col. Lewis Tumlin, had been a member of the Baptist church for many years.  The writer has known her for a long time, and has often heard her voice, around the family altar, as well as in the great congregation, rising in pathetic strains to the throne of Grace, for penitent souls and hard-hearted sinners.  She would often rise and tell to the world what the Lord had done for her happy soul and encouraged all around her too seek for that “precious peace” which she in such great degree enjoyed. She leaves a husband and several children, and a large circle of friends to mourn her departure.  In death she left a bright testimony that she was going to the rest that remains for the people of God.
