Obituary.

Mrs. Judy F. Milam, wife of Dr. Thomas Milam, departed this life at her home in Bartow county, Ga., August 3, 1872.

The subject of this brief notice was born in Laurens county, S. C., in December, 1816, and was united in marriage with Dr. Thomas Milam in December, 1831.  She and her husband united with the Associate reformed Church in the year 1847.  Along with many others, who were immigrating to Georgia from the upper districts in South Carolina, from about the year 1845 to 1855, she with her husband and family came to Bartow county, Ga., in the year 1851.  That portion of the county in which they settled had no church of which they were members, and it was not till some two years after, the Presbyterian Church at Euharlee was organized, with which they united with two of their children.  She had therefore been a member of the Presbyterian Church some 20 years, which she adorned with a pious and godly life.  She leaves behind her, for the comfort of her aged companion, and the imitation of her children, the bright example of a Christian life, as wife, mother, Christian, around which relations cluster the dearest affections.  Mrs. Milam illustrated all the virtues and hallowed all the associations of these several relations.  She bore her protracted feebleness and suffering with much Christian fortitude, and when at last the messenger came she calmly and hopefully journeyed with him to the goodly land, where she shall die no more.  Let all who knew this Christian woman follow her even as she followed Christ.

A Friend.
