Mrs. Marsh Dead.
Lady Formerly Residing Here, Dies in Atlanta.

Mrs. Caroline Marsh died in Atlanta at the home of her son-in-law, Mr. B. R. Padgett, Sunday.

Mrs. Marsh was well known and had numerous friends in this community.  She was the wife of Peter Marsh, who joined the confederate army while a resident of Cartersville and served with credit as a soldier.  She resided here up to a few years ago.

The Atlanta Constitution says of Mrs. Marsh:

“Mrs. Marsh was prominently connected throughout the state and enjoyed the friendship of a large number of acquaintances, not only in Cartersville, but in this city.  She was admired for her charitable and Christian attributes by all with whom she came in contact.  Mrs. Marsh would have celebrated her eighty-second birthday on February 17th.  She was a native of Charleston, S. C. but had resided in this state for a number of years.”

Her remains were shipped to Cartersville and a goodly number of friends followed them to their last resting place at Oak Hill.
