The community was shocked this morning by the announcement of the death of Mrs. John T. Owen, which occurred about 8 o’clock. She had been ill for some time, and while her condition was serious her death was unexpected by her family and friends. She was a most estimable Christian lady, whose death cast a gloom over the entire community. Owing to the lateness of the news reaching us before going to press a more extended notice is postponed until our next paper.

Death of Mrs. Sallie T. Owen.

Mrs. Sallie T. Owen, wife of John T. Owen, died at her residence on Cassville St., Thursday morning, April 18th, aged forty-six years, seven months and seven days.

The deceased moved from Abbeville, S. C. to this place in August 1869. Since her residence here she has by her many noble, womanly virtues and uniformly gentle manners won the universal esteem of all who knew her. She was naturally of a modest and retiring disposition; but the circle of intimate friends who understood the scope and fullness of her beautiful Christian life and her splendid traits of character were strongly endeared to her. She was a consistent member of the Presbyterian church, and always ready, and among the most earnest in its work. As a wife she was faithful and devoted; as a mother ever thoughtful and tenderly affectionate. She leaves a loving husband and three children to mourn her loss.

The funeral took place from the Presbyterian church, the services being conducted by the Rev. Mr. Hillhouse, the pastor. His remarks upon the life and character of the deceased were beautiful and touching. The remains were interred at Oak Hill cemetery.
