Sunday's Obituary: Hannah Brumfield, 1885 MS

Hannah Ann Youngblood Brumfield

27 September 1808 GA – 25 March 1885 MS
Daughter of Benjamin Youngblood & Susannah Collins 
Wife of Jesse Kelly Brumfield




Died at the residence of her son-in-law, A. J. Andrews, in this town, on Wednesday last, Mrs. Hannah Brumfield, relict of the late Jesse Brumfield, aged 77 years. But a short time since this estimable lady witnessed the departure of her husband, with whom she had lived for more than fifty years. – Her life has been long, and as happy as ordinarily falls to the lot of humanity, having at all periods of life occupied a piece high in the confidence and esteem of her neighbors and acquaintances. For many years Mrs. Brumfield has been a devoted Christian and member of the Baptist church, and, possessing as she did many of the Christian graces, she died in full assurance of that rest reserved for the people of God.

I just love the wording of old obituaries.
