Body of Prominent Southern Woman Buried at Memphis.

The body of Mrs. Catherine M. Ayres, who died in St. Louis last week, has been deposited in the family vault in Elmwood Cemetery, Memphis. Captain and Mrs. John C. Parker of St. Louis accompanied the body to Memphis.

Mrs. Ayres, who was the widow of Treadwell S. Ayres, was well known in Memphis, where she and her husband resided for many years. The Ayres mansion, on Court Square, was noted for its hospitality in the days before the Civil War.

Since the death of her husband, in 1883, Mrs. Ayres had made her home in St. Louis. She lived with her daughter, Mrs. Parker. Mrs. Ayres had been a member of the Methodist Church for seventy-three years.
