Mrs. Drennen has been engaged in missionary work in Japan for many years, and was in the country on a viit when the illness which terminated in her death laid upon her. She was expecting to visit her relatives in this place before returning to her post of duty in Japan. Mrs. Drennen was an aunt of Mr. J.A. McGoodwin, Mrs. A.S. Walker, and Mrs. M.J. Brevard, of this place, and only a few years ago paid them a pleasant visit. (from contibutor Bob Law #46934054)
