Narsissie Jane Cox, widow of George W. Cox, died at her home on Ellis Prairie last Sunday at the age of 75 years, 1 month and 17 days. Mrs. Cox's maiden name was McCrarie and she was born in East Tennessee July 4, 1835. She was united in matrimony with George W. Cox November 5, 1855, and eight children resulted from this union, four girls and four boys, all of whom are now living. She professed faith in Christ and united with the Baptist church at the age of 18 years and lived a true and faithful Christian life until called to meet the Master she had served.

This is another of the good old citizens gone. One by one they are passing, leaving sorrowing hearts and vacant homes. They pass to their reward in the home prepared for them, while relatives and friends are bowed with the grief which seems unbearable.

Mrs. Cox was one of the dear, good mothers, kind-hearted and thoughtful for the welfare of those near and dear to her, gentle in her ministrations to the son or daughter who never grew too large to be her boy or girl.

The remains were buried at Emery graveyard Monday, funeral services being conducted by Rev. J. S. Rice in the presence of a large gathering of relatives and friends.

The Herald extends earnest sympathy to the bereaved children.
