Dresden Enterprise
Dec. 8, 1902

Mrs. Henrietta, beloved wife of ex-County Judge J. L. McGlothlin, died at the family residence in Dresden on Wednesday morning, Dec. 6, after a long and painful illness. Mrs. McGlothlin had been a patient sufferer from that dreaded disease--consumption--for years and her demise last Wednesday morning came as no shock to her family and friends.

Mrs. McGlothlin was well known to our people, having spent the greater part of her life in this community and many relatives and friends will be grieved to learn of her death. The deceased was loved and admired by a large circle of friends, for she was a good woman indeed. She was a great admirer of flowers and when her health would permit spent most of her time working among the many and beautiful flower beds and no one had a greater variety nor prettier flowers than she. She was charitable and kind and her many deeds of kindness and charity will live after her.

Mrs. McGlothlin was born September 23, 1838, professed religion and joined the Methodist church some 30 years ago, and was married to Mr. McGlothlin Feb. 26, 1856. To this union were born two children - a son and a daughter - both of whom preceded her in death. The funeral was conducted at the family residence Thursday morning at 10 o'clock by Rev. J. W. Irion, pastor of the Methodist church here, and interment at the Dresden cemetery. Judge McGlothlin has the profound sympathy of a host of friends in his sad bereavement.
