Death of Mrs. A. Knight.

Mrs. Eliza Caroline Knight, wife of Mr. A. Knight, who has been very ill since 2nd inst., expired at 6 o’clock on Tuesday evening.  For more than a week she had lingered at the verge of the grave, with then and now gleams of hope that she might recover. But such was not to be, and her spirit took its flight for the home of the blessed.  She was conscious up to the last and had no regrets as to the coming dissolution except leaving her devoted husband, an affectionate son, her only child, and loving relatives.  She died peacefully and serene, fully prepared to meet death in triumph.  Mrs. Knight was a devoted member of the M. E. church, south, and her life fully exemplified the beautiful life of the true Christian.  She left a message to her parents and relatives not to grieve for her, because she was better off than any of them.  She was a native of North Carolina, but came to Georgia early in life.  She was forty-two years of age.  A large concourse of our citizens followed the remains of the deceased to Oak Hill cemetery, where the services of her church were conducted by Rev. Mr. Ryburn.  “Blessed be the pure in heart, for they shall see God.” [Resolutions of Respect by the Woman’s Missionary Society of the Methodist Episcopal Church of Cartersville can be found on page 3 of the April 29, 1880 issue.]
