"Mamie" was a lovely child who sufferred early in life from a disease which caused her to lose her leg. On 2/1/1874, her mother wrote to the Hutchesons in Virgina from Anderson, Texas the following lines: "It is quiet out at night & the little ones are snugly tucked in bed____Little Miss Mary having seen fit to keep her little peepers open til a few moments ago. She is the brightest-merriest little baby I ever saw-has a smile for everybody ____ I know she will win her Gr. Ma's heart directly___ she certainly gives less trouble than any baby in the world, has no nurse yet, interferes so little with my daily avocations that I hardly know I have a baby___ I left her sitting in a little chair today & when I returned Elise had taken her out & was attempting to carry her-upon my remonstrating she said-"sister was so tired sitting in the chair-I was trying to walk about with her". Almost six years later her uncle, Allen Carrington, wrote on 1/18/1880 to his sister-in-law, Alice Young, shortly after the surgery: "Mamie is strengthening some but still is in a miserable condition. I greatly doubt if she ever recovers entirely. Her leg is amputated above the knee & if she gets well, will be a constant source of trouble and misery to her. Her parents have suffered in heart and mind almost as much as she has. I should regard her death as a blessing to herself and her parents." Nevertheless, Mamie progressed through school with a positive attitude and according to family letters did not condone sympathy from others. In her final years she was living near her Aunt "Kate" Thompson in Washington D. C. where she was undergoing medical treatment. Her father had requested in June of her sister Elise that she be allowed to remain in Chattanooga at Elise's home after her Aunt Kate departed for Staunton. Mamie passed away there in Sept.
