Mrs. Elizabeth Lang Dies Last Week
A Well Known Good Lady Passes Away Last Week.

The death of Mrs. Elizabeth H. Lang, at her residence Thursday evening last removes one of the oldest residents of Cartersville. Mrs. Lang was in her 83rd year and her death was due to a general break down, due to her years.

She leaves one daughter, Mrs. R.B. Walker, of Dallas, and a nephew, Mr. T.W. Simpson, of this city, as her only surviving near relatives.

Mrs. Lang was born in Walton county, but with her husband came to Bartow county in 1845. Mr. Lang conducted a mercantile business in Cartersville for a number of years and later went to farming. He entered the Civil War as a member of the first Georgia regiment and was wounded at the battle of Jonesboro and in a few days thereafter died in the hospital at Griffin.

After the war Mrs. Lang bought and moved to the place where she died, on north Erwin street.

Mrs. Lang was a member of the Presbyterian church and was a good Christian woman.

The funeral took place Friday. She was buried at Oak Hill.
