Miss MOLLIE A. P. SETTLES was born in ___ county, Tenn., and died in Bartow county, Georgia, March 5th, 1876.

It was the privilege of the writer to be intimately associated with the deceased for two years past, and I can truly say that I have rarely seen a brighter example of early piety than our departed sister presented.  Brought up from infancy by pious parents, it is not to be wondered at that in early life she gave her heart to God, and lived and died in his service.  Possessed of a strong intellect, and gifted with rare conversational powers, she was always an agreeable companion, while her rich spiritual endowments made her always a safe counselor for the seeker of religion.  Doubtless the good seed scattered by her hand in the waste places of earth will eventually spring up and bear abundant harvest, notwithstanding the hand that planted it has forever ceased from its labors.  Our beloved sister died as she had lived.  The religion which sustained and consoled her amid the storms and turmoils of life, comforted and upheld her through the valley and shadow of death, and enabled her to shout “glory to God in the highest,” even while the icy hand of Death was stopping her pulses and bidding the “weary wheels of life stand still.”  In the triumphs of faith she passed over the river and entered, beyond doubt, into that “rest which remaineth for the people of God.”  Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord from henceforth; yea, saith the spirit, that they may rest from their labors, and their works do follow them.
