Nancy Jane Keen Witherington
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Sep. 10, 1809
Death: Sep. 6, 1879

Died at the residence of J. S. Partin on the 6th instant,Mrs. Nancy Witherington age 69 years, 11 months
and 20 days. After a long and painful illness of more than 6 months she was called to her eternal rest. On
the 4th day of Dec. 1843 she was left a widow with five
helpless children. From that time until her
death she lived the desolate life of a widow and struggled
alone to rear her orphan children...laying before them the good example of a pious and christian mother.
Mrs. Witherington was born in Cumberland Co. NC.and at age
7 moved to Laurens Co. Ga.where she lived the greater
portion of her life. Her life was devoted to the
cause of the Redeemer,and in her dying hours she gave
abundant testimony that a home of rest awaited her weary
soul. She leaves 4 children,friends and relatives to mourn
her loss. How can we do justice to the name and memory of
so faithful a mother? I can only say; Children,follow
her example.

She sleeps in her grave.,neath the green oak tree.
Where many have slept long ago,
and she's gone to her rest in the mansions of bliss,
Where angels will dwell evermore.
