Mrs. J. W. Wofford Dead

She Had Been Sick About the First of the Year

The following from the Kansas City Journal of May 29th, will be read with sadness by the Cartersville friends of Mrs. Wofford who was formerly a resident of this city. The Journal says:

"Mrs. Cornelia Elizabeth Wofford, wife of Judge J.w. wofford, died at her home, 1012 Vine street, yesterday, after a lingering illness. The fatal illness commenced about the first of the year, and she gradually sank under it until her death.

She was sixty-two years of age, and a native of South Carolina, her grandfather, Monsieur Carrere, a French political refugee, settling near Charleston about the beginning of the past century. She married Judge wofford just before the commencement of the war between the states, at Atlanta, Ga. During the struggle she remained away from the scene of actual war, and in 1864 nursed her husband, then a first lieutenant in a Georgia regiment, after he had been wounded.

She came to Kansas city with her husband twenty-seven years ago and reared a family of six sons and four daughters. She was preeminently a home woman and did not take an active interest in politice or club life. She was a member of the Episcopal church.

The funeral will take place from the residence tomorrow morning at ten o'clock and burial will be in the receiving vault at Elmwood cemetery. The Rev. A.D. Madeira, of Independence, an old friend of the family, will officiate at the funeral.
