Caroline Chappell wife of W.B. Chappell.The couple married in 1831.
One by one,in rapid succession,our fellow travelers to eternity are passing away.Mrs.Caroline Chappell died at 5 O'Clock,A.M.,March 31,1885,at the house of Mr.W.D. Coffee,her son-in-law,which had been her home for 17 years,in her widowhood.Her family name was Mulkey;and she was born near Hillsboro,Jasper county,Ga.,April 12th,1810.At the early age of 14 years she professed religion and joined the Church,and thus begun in earnest the one great and important business of mortals,here below,to serve God and prepare for endless bliss.She was married to W.B. Chappell in 1831;moved to mississippi in 1838,and thence to Texas in 1856.I became acquainted with sister Chappell in 1860,in Lavaca county,and had been her Pastor six or seven years,since that time,have always found her a quiet,sweet spirited,consistent Christian woman.She exemplified in her life,the religion of Christ.Her health was delicate for many years,but her last sickness continued only a few days.The disease settled on the brain,rendering her unconscious,so that she left no dying testimony,but a life of 60 years of faith in Christ,with such works as are the fruit of faith,is worth more than a few words which might be spoken,just at the end of the journey.She often spoke of her approaching departure when in usual health,and always expressed a willingness,and readiness to depart with Christ,which is far better.The loved ones left on earth are poorer,those she meets in heaven are richer.Her body sleeps in Walker grave yard,six miles west of Columbus,until the trump that wakes the dead shall sound,and there our God shall make all things new.
