Death of Mrs. McRee. At her home near Valdosta about 11 o'clock p.m., July 30th, Mrs. Rachel L. McRee, the wife of George R. McRee, departed this life in the 31st year of her age, leaving a devoted husband, four little children and numerous relatives and friends to mourn her loss.

She died suddenly and unexpectedly to those, who were her constant attendants, although very unwell for several weeks, no one thought her end so near. She professed conversion and joined the Baptist Church at Quitman in 1864. Her life was a daily exhibition of those qualities and graces which mark the character of a true Christian.

As a wife and mother she had few equals and no superiors in making home to her family, the dearest spot on earth.
Her open heart, generous disposition, pleasant manner and cordial welcome secured to her many friends who now join in mourning her loss.

~The Valdosta Times. Saturday, 7 August 1875.
