notes from Marcellus Thompson, son of Joseph G. and Catherine (Brockmeyer) Thompson.

On Sunday last Mrs. Thompson, wife of Joseph Thompson, of Clarksburg, was translated from the earth to heaven. Morn for her not as dead, for to live in the hearts we leave behind us, is not to die. Her life was a most exemplary one and filled with good and noble deeds. Her character was adorned with every Christian and womanly grace and she tarried here but to love and minister to the comforts of those around her. God in his mercy shield and succor the bowed heads and bereaved hearts of the loved ones that linger behind, and give them beauty for ashes, the veil of joy for mourning, and the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness.

The Funeral of Mrs. Joseph G. Thompson,
Will take place at her residence, on the Corner of Pike and Chestnut Streets, at 4 o'clock P. M., on Monday, June 6th, 1887. Interment at I.O.O.F. Cemetery. Friends of the family are invited.

Catharine Thompson
The wife of Joseph G. Thompson, died June 5th 1887, and was born near Ellicott's Works, Virginia, October 11th 1832. She was a good woman; a kind and indulgant mother and an affectionate and devoted wife.

"Bright be the place of thy soul!
No lovelier spirit than thine
E'er burst from its mortal control,
In the orbs of the blessed to shine."

"Sight be the turf of the tomb!
May its verdure like emeralds be:
There should not the shadow of gloom
In ought that reminds us of thee."
