DEATH OF MRS. CLAPP.
Another Landmark of Knoxville's Progress Gone.
With the death of Mrs. Isabella Jane Clapp yesterday, there passed away another old landmark in the progress of Knoxville's history. Mrs Clapp was a descendant of the White family, that founded Knoxville. She was first married to Austin F Walden, who died fur years after, and about fourteen years later she married the late Solomon Clapp, who was well known over East Tennessee. She was born and reared in Knoxville. Her relatives now embrace a great many people in this city and county. She was sixty-six years of age and had been a devout member of the Methodist church for fifty years. She leaves but one descendant, A. J. Walden, at whose home, 186 Mabry street, she passed her last days.
The remains will be buried at the cemetery at the old White farm, six and a half miles northeast of the city on Washington Pike. The procession will leave the house about nine o'clock this morning.
The deceased's father was a carpenter by trade and he hewed logs that Knoxville's first court house was made of, and, also the first jail. He helped clear a place for the first steamboat landing and cleared away brush and trees where the old city hall now stands, and where he raised corn and wheat.
