She became a member of the Baptist Church in 1846, and remained in full communion till her death. She bore her heavy affliction with Christian fortitude. She was a lady of many kindly and amiable qualities of head and heart, and leaves a large circle of relatives and friends to mourn her demise. OAKLAND
