Departed this life, on March 10th, 1876, DIDAMA MURRAY, wife of Peter Murray, in Cartersville.  She was born in Virginia and was brought to this country with her husband and sold to Lewis Tumlin, many years ago.  She was a faithful servant, and when her master refugeed he left her and her husband to take care of the house, and although the house was burned by the Vandals, she managed to save a great deal of her masters bedding.  She was beloved by her neighbors both white and colored and she labored for her race after they were set free, to make them useful and respectable.  She was the mother of eleven children.  Her health became bad near two years ago.  She was perfectly resigned and ready to go, having faith in the blood of her Redeemer, which was shed for her.  She leaves a bereaved husband and children and numerous friends to mourn, but their loss is her eternal gain.  She was 66 years.  She had twins twice, and three children at one birth the third time.
