The many friends of Mrs. Mary Beall, wife of Dr. J.D. Beall, deceased, will regret to learn of her death which occurred at the home of her son, Mr. J.D. Beall, in Macon on Thursday the 19th inst., after a short illness. Mrs. Beall was about 60 years of age, a lifelong citizen of Taylor County and a lady who was loved by all who knew her. Her remains were interred at Crowell's church on Saturday, of which church she was a useful and devoted member.
Scarcely had the citizens of the eastern portion of the county recovered from the shock of the death of Mrs. Beall before the sad announcement came of the death of Mrs. Martha E. Dupriest, wife of Green Dupriest which occurred at the same residence as that of Mrs. Beall, on Sunday morning, who was living with her son, Mr. H.H. Dupriest. She was an excellent Christian lady. Her remains were interred in the cemetery at Crowell on Monday, of which church she was a consistent member.

Reynolds, Ga., April 23rd, 1894
Mrs. Dr. Beall died at Macon last Wednesday night. She resided all her life in this county up to a few months ago. She was truly a Christian lady. Her remains were brought to Reynolds and interred at Crowell's church. In the same house at Macon occurred the death 3 days later of Mrs. Green Dupriest whose remains will arrive at Reynolds this morning and will also be interred at Crowell church. Mrs. Dupriest was a Christian lady with many noble traits of character. She and Mrs. Beall left Panhandle district and moved to Macon a few months ago residing with their youngest sons, J.D. Beall and Harrison Dupriest, who are doing business in that city. Surely the ways of rovidence are past understanding.

The death of Mrs. Mary L. Beall and Mrs. Martha Durpriest both of which occurred in Macon a short time since carries sadness to every home in Panhandle. Mrs. Beall was the daughter of Col. C.F. Fickling and the sister of Major Fickling, and was born in South Carolina in 1831 making her 61 years old. She was a good woman of which she left abundant evidence. The funeral service was conducted by Rev. Jason Shirah, and was one of the simplest most eloquent sermons to which we have ever listened.
Mrs. Dupriest who had spent many years of her life with us, was one of the purest of living women. She was 66 years of age, and was generally loved by everybody. Mrs. Dupriest and Mrs. Beall left this neighborhood to go to Macon some time ago, to live with their sons, Messrs. Harrison Dupriest, and J.D. Beall each occupying the half of a large residence. A singular coincidence is mentioned in this connection. They were near the same age, left the same neighborhood to live with their youngest sons in the same house, died of the same disease, near the same time almost the same identical crowd attending the burial services. They were placed in the same kind of casket and the finishing strokes were placed on the mounds by the same man.
Although the two young men have no mothers to lend light and happiness to their lives – no mother to direct, restrain and comfort them, there are two mounds in Crowell's cemetery, the thought of which will chill their arms whenever raised to a wrong deed, or their hearts when moved to conceive it.
I have shown all three obits for Mary & Martha. Each has a different death date for both. The cemetery survey posts that Mary's marker shows she died the 13th and Martha on the 21st. God only knows which dates are correct??
