OBITUARY
Mrs. Margaret Atkinson came from Ireland to this country in 1844, and located in Andrew County, Missouri. She was about 84 years old, was a member of the Episcopal Church from her youth till she came to this country, at which time she attached herself to the M.E. Church, and remained a member of that church till her death. She died in great peace, and was sensible to the last. Only a few moments before she died she spoke to her daughter and family in her usual tone of voice, and said she was willing and ready to die. She departed this life on the morning of the 25th of January, at 8 o'clock. She had been very feeble for a long time, and was unable to attend the usual means of grace. She requested to have inscribed on her tombstone the words:
Why should we mourn departed friends,
Or shake at death's alarms:
'Tis but the voice that Jesus sends
To call them to his arms.
By special request of the deceased, the writer preached the funeral sermon to a large company of friends and neighbours. D.H. Lanky
-- As printed in the Savannah Reporter on February 4, 1881

Many thanks to Sharon Hunt for allowing me to amalgamate her memorial and photo with my memorial for my 3rd G-Grandmother.
