Mrs Sarah Mayes, aged seventy-seven years, widow of the lates James E.

Painter of Stephens City, and Ambrose C. Painter of Baltimore. The latter came here several weeks ago on account of his sister's serious condition and spent some time with her. Mrs. Mayes leaves the following children: Amos Mayes, Earnest Mayes, Mrs. Archie Painter, Mrs. Lee Wilson, and Mrs. Henry Good, all of Stanley. One daughter, Mrs. William Duncan is dead.

Mrs. Mayes had been a member of the Old School Baptist church for many years and was a woman of pronounced Christian character, and was held in high esteem. Her funeral which took place from the home yesterday afternoon was conducted by Eld. John B. Jenkins with interment in the Mayes graveyard.
