OBITUARY
Mrs. Achsah A. Andrews, wife of James Andrews, and daughter of the late Capt Holloway, died in Upson County July 29 in the 37th year of her age. [1859]

She had been a member of the Methodist Church for 22 years. From the time of her conversion until the close of her life, she had been distinguished for her uniform piety. In the relations of daughter, wife, mother, and mistress, religion was the controlling element of all her movements. Hers was no fitful piety, which today shines forth with the brilliancy of the meteor and tomorrow all is dark and forbidding to the eye of the beholder. Retiring in nature she was uniformly calm in the felt presence and power of God. But the closing scene, full of hope and exultant joy, can never be described.

Her last hour upon earth was one of glorious triumph. Addressing her husband she said, "I have tried to cheer and inspire you with the hope of my recovery. But I can do so no longer. The hour for my departure has come, but I am ready. Bring my children that they may receive a mother's blessing. My servants, farewell. My husband, farewell. Meet me in heaven". And with a shout of triumph, she passed away from earth, to join the angel throng in heaven.
