Our town was very much shocked early Monday morning by the announcement of the death of Miss ELOISE STOVALL, daughter of Mrs. Stovall of this town.  The deceased has been sick for two or three weeks, but was not considered dangerous.  Indeed, it was announced that she was improving on Sunday evening, and hopes were entertained that she would soon be up again.

We have never seen more universal regret at the death of a young lady.  The spirit of sadness pervaded the whole community on Christmas day.  The young people of both sexes seemed to feel as if a bright star had fallen from among them.  Mrs. Eloise was a young lady highly gifted and her mind was well cultivated.  With a most amiable and loveable disposition, she was admired and loved by all who knew her.  It is not strange that she was a favorite in society and that her death is much lamented.

We hope some one will pay a more fitting tribute to the memory of the deceased—that a pen inspired with a better knowledge of her may indite (sic), in more fitting terms, a tribute more appropriate than we here present. [Several more Tributes to Eloise Maud Stovall can be found in the January 4, 1877 issue on page 1 and 3.  Her father’s name was John W. L. Stovall and she was formerly a resident of Augusta. She died on Christmas day.  She was interred in Summerville Cemetery, Augusta, Georgia, by the side of her father.  She was a member of the Episcopal Church. “She was born in Augusta on February 14, 1856 and was twenty years, ten months and eleven days old at the time of her death.”  A poem to Eloise Maude Stovall, entitled “Regret” can be found on page 1 of the January 12, 1877 issue.]
