"A SAD OCCURRENCE
"Miss Janie BREWER, of Phenix City, Dies Suddenly at Parrott
"The many friends of Miss Janie BREWER, of Phenix City [Lee County, Alabama], will be pained to learn of her sudden death which occurred at Parrot [Terrell County], Ga., Thursday. Her sister, who resides at Parrott, telegraphed Miss BREWER a few days ago that she was very sick and requested her come to Parrott at once. She immediately went to the bedside of her sister and cared for her faithfully up till the time of her death. Miss BREWER was giving her sister a dose of medicine and all of a sudden dropped dead. Her remains were brought in on the Georgia and Alabama [rail]road at 12:00 o'clock yesterday from Parrott. The funeral occurred from the depot, Rev. J. W. HOWARD officiating in a very impressive manner. The interment occurred at Clapp's factory burying ground."
