Pendleton County
West Virginia, USA
Death: Mar. 31, 1903
Pendleton County
West Virginia, USA


Died at her home in Franklin, March 31, 1903, Mrs. Carrie H. Boggs, wife of Mr. William H. Boggs, in the 57th year of her age.

Thus is gone from our midst a true woman, a loving and devoted wife and mother, a consecrated and consistent Christian. She received her education at Staunton, VA during the years of the Civil War, in the school of those consecrated Christian women, the Misses Sheffy. While in this school she was converted and shortly after joined the Presbyterian Church at Franklin, of which she remained to the time of her death a useful and consistent member. Just ten years, to the day, prior to her death, the family circle was first broken by the death of her daughter Janet, a sweet young girl of 14 years.

A husband and three children remain to mourn her loss.

We never met a a woman whose ideal we held higher than that of the deceased. She always spoke gently and in accents that made one feel better for having been in her presence.

The funeral took place in the Presbyterian church by her pastor Rev. Ivanhoe Robertson after which her remains were laid to rest in the Cedar Hill Cemetery.
