Death of An Old Lady.
Mrs. Charlotte Sylar Quietly Falls To Sleep.

Mrs. Charlotte Sylar, who was perhaps the oldest person living in Bartow county, died at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Kate Word, in this city, on Friday night last.

Mrs. Sylar was ninety two years, ten months and twenty two days old, having been born in Danbridge, Tenn., on September 16, 1797. She moved to this county, then Cass, in 1833, having resided here ever since.

In many respects Mrs. Sylar was a very remarkable woman. She was strong and vigorous in mind and body and during her whole life she has had only a few weeks illness. She was a devout and consistent member of the Presbyterian church.

Her remains were interred in Oak Hill cemetery on Saturday afternoon, the services being conducted at the grave by Rev. W. H. Cooper.
