February 5, 1898---One of the oldest ladies in this section dead. Was generally beloved. Mother of a large family, and connected with some of the prominent families of this vicinity
For some time Mrs. Nancy Bagwell, one of the oldest ladies of this section, has been lying at the point of death, suffering from afflictions incident to old age, at the home of her son-in-law, Mr. Sam Wilkerson, of the Port Royal neighborhood. The end came this morning at 7:00.
Mrs. Bagwell was 88 years old and had spent her long life of almost four and one half score in this county. Her maiden name was Morrow and she was related to a number of the most prominent families in this portion of the state. The death of this Christian old lady removes one of the beloved women who ever resided in this section. Her life was one of Christian work and godly example. This incomplete mention of her death will by no means do her justice, for in her were combined all the attributes of a good woman. She was the grandmother of Mrs. James Hord, of this city and left behind a number of children and grandchildren and other relatives in this locality.
The funeral services will be conducted by Revs. Gardner and Free at McAdoo church tomorrow about noon and the interment will be at the Bagwell burying ground (Pleasant Bagwell Cemetery) near the church. Deceased has been a constant member of the Cumberland Presbyterian church for over half a century.
