The death of Mrs. Laura A.

She had been in a serious condition since the operation because of complications that set it. She was the daughter of Jacob and Mary Foland, pioneer residents of Madison County. She was born near Frankton, this county, March 15, 1867. Mrs. Hammond was very highly esteemed by all who knew her, a good Christian mother and a faithful church worker. She was a member of Joyce Chapel church and the W.T.C.U.
