Agnes S Leatherwood - Departed this life, August the 5th, 1861, aged 52 years, on month and 15 days. The deceased was a native of South Carolina, then moved to Benton County (now Calhoun), Ala. where she remained until her death. She had been affected for some time, and the latter part of her afflictions was very severe and yet she bore the same without a murmur.

The deceased lived a member of the Baptist church and adorned her profession by a godly walk and close conversation; but her seat is now vacant tin the church house, and also in the family circle; but in the language of Revelation "blessed are the dead that die in the Lord, from henceforth, yea saith the spirit, that they may rest from their labors, and their works, do follow them." Her Christian walk will still live in the memory of those with whom she associated. She was a warm and devoted friend, and generous and forgiving to her enemies - a good and generous neighbor - a kind and affectionate wife and mother. She has left a husband, 10 or 11 children, and many relatives and friends to mourn her loss, but their loss is her eternal gain. We sympathize with the family in their bereavement, and may the Lord give them grace to sustain them in their heavy bereavement.
