Mary Isabel, daughter of W. S. and R. B. Stedman, was born January 30th, 1840. She first saw the light in Athens, and during her entire life she has been a resident of this place. When about twenty years old she united with the Methodist Episcopal Church, and professed religion. She was for sometime rather actively connected with the church and retained her membership in it until the time of her death.
January 18th, 1864, she was united in marriage with Mr. F. W. Hackman who, with one daughter, survive her.
Some two years since Mrs. Hackman noticed a lump on her breast, at first not alarming, but which gradually increased in size and in time became painful. For more than an year she has been aware of its cancerous nature and has been taking treatment, but the disease increased in virulence, and other complications appeared and after long weeks of terrible suffering death stepped in and released the sufferer in the very early morning of Friday last.
Mrs. Hackman was so well known in Athens that a description of her life would be superfluous. As a daughter she was dutiful and kind. She often expressed a wish to outlive her father and mother so as to take care of them. For some time it would seem she had almost changed places with her mother, treating her, as she did, with such tender oversight and care as is generally a characteristic of a mother’s affection.
She was an affectionate, faithful wife. True to her conjugal duties and happy in her home life. Her mother’s love was ardent, constant and abiding and her daughter, whose presence and person called it forth and received it all can realized and remember.
She died January 27th, 1893, aged 53 years and 7 days.
