The funeral of little Annie Stevens of Huntsville was preached by Rev. J. W. Long at Mt. Zion Friday at 10 o’clock. She was the only daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Fred Stevens of Huntsville. It is sad to see the young die. The little darling is better off than we poor mortals here below for we know that she is with God and the angels today and is happy and sweet in the sunlight of His love. She was a great sufferer but endured it like a soldier. Little Annie is gone, but we will see her some day, if we do God’s will. Interment was made in the Nicholas cemetery. May the Lord comfort the grief stricken parents—no one else can.
It is with sadness that we chronicle the death of the beloved mother of Messrs. D. E. and J. O. Kelly, who died at an early hour this morning, (Wednesday). The news of the death of this noble Christian woman will be heard with regret and sorrows throughout the state.
