Mrs. R.S. Abbott
missed part of the obit
Death Again Among Us
Wednesday, the 19th, inst., on a little mound 4 miles near south-east of Calhoun, many friends assembled to witness the burial of the wife of beloved brother Rolly S. Abbott. Sister Sarah Ellen Abbott's health seemed about as good on Saturday as usual. On Monday, in the afternoon, she is in silent death. The cause of Sister Sarah Ellens death seemed to be hemmorage of the lungs. She was near 35 years of age, and leaves in her husband's care 5 tender children. She was the daughter of Eld. A. Adams, whose body now lies silent in the graveyard, near Bethlehem Baptist Church, of which church years gone by, he was the beloved and devoted pastor. But why should the friends sorrow to bury Sister Sarah Ellen Abbott, whose pious life had been so noted for about 20 years of her brief life? Brother R.S. Abbott lose a good affectionate wife, who was ever appreciative of his manifest kindness, those children's tender and watchful mother. A mother is called to witness the going before of another of the family, and sisters and brothers will miss her as well as friends and neighbors, and Salem Baptist Church must reserve a blank page on the church record as a tribute to her memory. Her faith was confirmed in Christ and her countenance radiant with bright smiles when waves of the Jordan of death began to roll back for her crossing, to ensure a safe landing on the shores of the heavenly country, which is so "far better." The weeping friends should resign quietly and in hope cheer up till the morning of a glorious immortality.

There is no headstone for Sarah Ellen Adams Abbott, obit in Calhoun Times, March 27, 1884 edition states the following. She was the daughter of Andrew Adams, whose body now lies silent in the graveyard near Bethlehem Baptist Church.

We regret to learn of the sudden death of Mrs. R.S. Abbott, which occurred Monday morning last. She has been suffering with pneumonia and on Sunday uncontrolled bleeding from the lungs, and expired as stated above.

Friends and neighbors, and Salem Baptist Church must reserve a blank page on the church record as a tribute to her memory. Her faith was confirmed in Christ and her countenance radiant with bright smiles when waves of the Jordan of death began to roll back for her crossing, to ensure a safe landing on the shores of the heavenly country, which is so "far better." The weeping friends should resign quietly and in hope cheer up till the morning of a glorious immortality.
