Burwell—Elizabeth B. Burwell was born in Petersburg, Va, March 8,1818 and died in Lauderdale county, Miss., February 2, 1881. At the age of eighteen she was married to Henry G. Walthall, who lived but a few years, leaving her with two little boys. In November, 1841, she was united in marriage to Abram L. Burwell from which union there were seven children born-two of whom preceeded their mother to the world beyond. Our departed sister became a member of the Methodist Church when she was thirteen years of age , and, while she could not recollect when she was converted, she knew she was a Christian, and loved the Lord. She never doubted that she was a child of God. Her daughter says in a note to the writer. "She was always noted for her piety," and "on her last bed of sickness exhorted each of her children to meet her in heaven." "Her children rise up and call her blessed." To say that a good woman, a kind, tender, loving wife and mother had passed away would not be enough to say. She was a woman felt for good not only in these relations in life, but by all who were associated with her. She was loved by her neighbors, who testified to her worth by their sorrowful presence when she was borne to the grave. The church , too, has lost a true, triad and valuable member. In her dark days Sister Burwell was one among a few to stand by the church, and by her presence and proayers aided in the cause of her loved Lord and Master. But her place is now vacant in the family circle , in the world and the church, and she has ceased to labor, suffer and toil, and rests. Sweet Rest! R.D. Norsworthy
