Death of Mrs. Elizabeth Arnold Broyles
Last evening at thirty minutes after eight o'clock Mrs. Elizabeth Arnold Broyles, wife of Colonel E.N. Broyles, breathed her last of earth at the family residence No. 149 Gullett street. Mrs. Broyles was seized with her mortal illness something over two weeks ago, and has since been prostrated upon a bed pain, suffering nearly all the time excruciating pangs and constantly tending toward her final dissolution. She had the constant attention and solace of all that family and loving friends could bring to her relief, while the highest medical skill of the city was summoned to her bed side. All efforts to check the ravages of her malady were fruitless, and death came to her as an almost welcome forlorn relief from suffer ing. Mrs. Broyles was a daughter of General Thomas D. Arnold, of Tennessee, and was born at Greenville, East Tennessee, in the month of April 1838. She inherited much of the vigorous brain and sterling character of her father, and early gave evidence of being remarkable for intellectual force and moral exaltation. She was educated at College Temple, Newnan, Georgia, under the direction of Professor M. P. Kellogg, and was a classmate of Mrs. Mary E. Bryan at that institution . These two ladies were always warm friends and mutual admirers, the one of the other. Mrs. Broyles had the literary faculty highly developed and her contributions to the current periodical literature of the south, over the initials "E.A.B " have always found favor with many thousands of readers. She was a lady of estimable qualities and numbered a large circle of friends in this city and in Cedartown, Rome and Milledgeville, in which places she had formerly resided. She leave s a devoted husband and four young children, all of whom are prostrated by their bereavement. She was the daughter of Mrs. General Arnold, and sister of Colonel Reuben Arnold, Frank A. Arnold, Thomas D. Arnold and Mrs. Sam W. Small, all of thi s city. The sympathies of the entire community will be with them in this season of grief. The funeral services will be held at St. Phillips church at 10 o'clock tomorrow (Friday) morning.
