Birth: Jan. 7, 1860
Death: Oct. 11, 1935
Rutherford County
North Carolina, USA

Mrs. Martha Guffey Bright, 75, passed away Friday afternoon at 3:30, at the home of her daughter, Mrs. J. H. Charlton, Princeton-Bluefield Road, after an illness of several years.

She had been a member of the Baptist church for many years and funeral services were conducted on Saturday morning at the home by Dr. Edward Stubblefield, pastor of the First Baptist Church, Princeton. At the conclusion of the service the funeral party left for Rutherfordton, N. C.; where she was laid to rest.

Her husband and a daughter died many years ago.

She is survived by one daughter, Mrs. J. H. Charlton of Princeton and two sons, J. G. Bright of Rutherford College, N.C., and U. D. Bright of Lynchburg, Va.

Mrs. Bright was very feeble for a number of years and confined to her bed for many months, suffering with the infirmities of age. Through it all she was nursed and cared for devotedly and tenderly by her daughter who gave up all other interests and pleasures to minister to the loved one so dependent upon her.
