Quite a number of our citizens know the mother of Mr. Knight, of Cartersville. She died suddenly on Sunday the 8th inst., aged 91 years. She ate her dinner as usual and was in as good spirits as she had been in many years. She was taken in convulsions after dinner while reading a newspaper, which she could do without glasses. She was put to bed and revived in a short time, when she stated that she was in no pain, but had feelings she could not describe. In a few moments she had a second convulsion and died at once. She had lived six miles from Atlanta thirty-eight years. She had been a member of the Methodist church for sixty or seventy years; in fact, beyond her recollection of the time of her uniting with the church as she has stated to her children. She was the mother of eleven children, six of whom are still living, all in Georgia except one, a resident of Texas. She was an industrious homebody and was one of the old mothers of Israel who “looked well to her household” and her children. Peace to her ashes, and green may the grass grow over her grave as emblematical of a pure and green old age.
