Death of an Estimable Lady.

It is with peculiar sadness that we chronicle the death of Mrs. Lee Simpson, although her death had been expected for many weeks. She was the eldest daughter of Rev. Jos. Jones and had lived all her life in Cartersville where she was dearly loved by all who knew her. She was endowed by nature with amiable and gentle disposition and a charming grace and dignity of person and manner which are seldom equaled.

About four years ago she was united in marriage to Mr. Lee Simpson of Laurens, S. C.

A few months ago her health began to fail and she gradually declined until she passed quietly away last Monday morning at four o’clock. She was a consistent member of the church and adorned her profession by a devoted life. Her funeral took place at the Presbyterian church and was conducted by Rev. J. S. Hillhouse, assisted by Rev. J. H. Mashburn. She was buried at the Benham burying ground about three miles from town by the side of her mother who died about six years ago. She leaves a large circle of near relatives and admiring friends who sincerely mourn her loss.
