Mrs. SARAH E. STONE, wife of Mr. James A. Stone, departed this life, at her home in Bartow county, Ga., on the 21st of April, 1872, with cancer on the breast.  Her suffering was protracted for over two years.  She suffered immensely but bore it all with Christian fortitude.

The subject of this brief notice was born on the 8th of December, 1824, in Iredell county, N. C., near the junction of Snow Creek and South Yadkin river.  She was the daughter of Mr. James Johnson, and grand-daughter of Asa Johnson, Esq.  She was raised in that neighborhood, and was united in wedlock to James A. Stone on the 23d of January, 1840.  She made a bright profession of religion at a camp-meeting held at providence M. E. Church in August 1845, and joined the M. E. Church at Snow Creek in 1846.  With her husband and two little children, she moved to then Cass, now Bartow county, Ga., and with her husband joined the M. E. Church South at Countyline, and remained an acceptable member until her death.  Her house was always a home for the preachers of her profession.  She leaves behind her, for the comfort of her companion and the imitation of her children and friends, the bright example of a Christian life.  She was a loving wife and an affectionate mother.  She was one of the best singers that I ever heard.  A few days before her death, she called her family around her bed, and talked to them, and made each a promise to meet her in heaven.  She then requested the neighbors be sent for, which was done, and all that came in she made them promise to meet her in Heaven, saying that soon she must leave this world, and that she had a home, a house not made with hands, eternal and in the heavens.  After this she paid but little attention to any thing that passed, and when the messenger came, she calmly and hopefully journeyed with him to the goodly land, where she shall die no more.  She left an affectionate husband, five children, and a host of friends to mourn their loss.

A Friend.
