Martha Watson "Pattie" Love Carrington
Birth: Oct. 19, 1851
Mecklenburg County
Virginia, USA
Death: Sep. 25, 1879
Houston
Harris County
Texas, USA

"Pattie" met and fell in love with her husband-to-be when he visited "Mt Airy" near Boydton, Virginia in the company of his sister, Mildred, and her husband, Joseph C. Hutcheson. She helped her sister-in-law, Mildred, in Houston with her ever growing family until her own son, Fontaine, was born. During the birth of her second child she died. Her disconsolate husband wrote to his sister-in-law, Alice Love Young, the following lines on 4/11/1880: "I take but little interest now in doing anything more than make a comfortable living for my babies and leave them enough to keep the wolf from the door when I am gone. All my aspirations above that are subdued; and if God will but give me the strength of life to discharge my trust and raise Pattie's children properly, and then take me to where she is, I have nothing more to ask of him. Nine tenths of the pleasure of success in business, of winning a case, or of anything else was always the pleasure it gave Pattie. Now I care but little, except to press through it, and do the best I can."

May songs of the angels welcome you and guide you along your way. May the smiles of the martyrs greet your own as darkness turns into day. Every fear will be undone and death will be no more, as songs of the angels bring you home before the face of God.
