Sept. 17
Died on the 6th instant, at the residence of DR. F.M. TUCKER, in the lower part of the District, MISS LOUISA A. BARNETT, daughter of JAVAN and RACHEL BARNETT, in the 20th year of her age.

In noticing this sad event, we are forcibly reminded of the uncertainty of everything that relates to mortal probation.

An interesting and highly intelligent young lady, full of hopes and full of promise to herself, friends and parents, has been cut down in the bloom of youth...

She was converted in her 13th year was a zealous member of the Baptist Church for the last 3 years of her life. She enjoyed religion much. It was to her a happy theme for conversation...

There was more to this Obiturary
but cut short...

Compiled by her Students

"Students of Louisa A Barnett, had this printed in the Carolina Spartan, in Tribute to Louisa. Tribute of Respect 'Carolina Spartan' Dated: 9-17-1857, Page 2

"At a meeting of the pupils of Woodland School House, near Hill's Factory, Spartanburg District,held on the 11th instant, the following preamble and resolutions were unanimously adopted:

Whereas it has pleased the despair of all event's, by a wise dispensation of his Providence, to remove from amongst us our friend and instructress, MissLOUISA A. BARNETT, who was so unexpectedly struck down in death, and cast off from her family, and friends, as well as her usefulness in the neighborhood: And whereas as a teacher she was kind and indulgent, looking over many of our Childish faults, at no time using severity, and by her kind and amiable disposition and Christian deportment endeared herself to ill? of us, we have the pleasant assurance that our loss is her eternal gain, and therefore sorrow not as those who have no hope be it.

Resolved, That the death of Miss L. A. Barnett this community has lost a useful member, the school a kind and efficient teacher, and her parents a devoted and affectionate daughter. Resolved, That we deeply sympathize with the parents and friends in their bereavement, recom-
mending them to the "Balm in Gilead and the Physician there."

Resolved, That as a tribute to her memory, we wear the usual badge of mourning for thirty days. Resolved, That a copy of the above be sent to each of the District papers for publication, and also one to the family of the deceased."
