From the Richmond Times, Feb. 3, 1893:
The funeral of Mrs. Grace Elizabeth Atkinson will take place this afternoon from the Union-Station Methodist church at 2:30. ... Mrs. Atkinson was a woman of lovely Christian character, and one who in life practiced most lavishly the greatest of cardinal virtues - charity. She had been sick several months, yet her death was unexpected to the family. She was in the seventy-third year of her age, the beloved wife of Henry A. Atkinson, Esq., the well-known furniture dealer of this city; the only sister of the late John A. Belvin, and the mother of Mrs. W. J. Gentry, Mrs. John A. Fleet, of Mathews county; Henry A. Atkinson, Jr., and William Hayes Atkinson.
