Death of Mrs. M. G. Braden.
Mrs. Mollie Graham Braden, wife of Judge Thomas N. Braden, died at her residence in Benton on Wednesday morning, 17th instant, at 2:30 o'clock, of pneumonia, in the 48th year of her age.
Mrs. Braden was the daughter of E. G. Campbell, who was Judge of the Claiborne Judicial District early in the 50's, and resided in Minden at the time of his death. She was born in Tennessee, and came to Louisiana with her father and family in 1850. Her early life was spent in Minden, but for the past 35 years she has lived in Bossier parish. She was married to Judge Braden, at Bellevue, on December 20th, 1865. She was the mother of ten children, six of whom survive her. She was a devoted wife and mother, and her loving words and motherly counsel will long be remembered and cherished by those who were always dear to her. She was a warm and sincere friend, and her death will be mourned by a large number of friends who "knew her but to love her" for her noble, self-sacrificing and unostentatious life.
All that loving hands and medical skill could do could not stay the band of death, and the life of this noble and useful christian woman has ended, and a devoted husband and children and sister are left to mourn their irreparable loss.
The remains of deceased will be buried to-day at Bellevue cemetery.
