Death Came to Aged Resident of Macon Monday Evening
Born in 1830

Mrs. Margaret E. CARHART, one of the pioneer residents of Macon, and a woman much beloved for her many excellent qualities, gently passed to the home beyond at 8:15 o'clock Monday evening, August 10, 1914, after a long illness, at ther home on North Rutherford street.

She was born in Zanesville, Ohio, January 21, 1830, and at the time of her death was well past the three score and ten, and all of them were years of usefulness and well-doing till illness and feebleness, brought on my advanced age, caused her activities to slacken.

Deceased reared a large family of children, four daughters surviving: Miss Ida CARHART, Miss Edith CARHART, Mrs. R. G. MITCHELL and Mrs. Rosa PERRINE of Chillicothe. Three sons, reared to manhood, have gone before: Arlington, Carrington and Arthur, Arlington's death occurring the past year: Mr. CARHART died December 29, 1905.

Many friends will unite with us in extending sympathy to the bereaved daughters who will deeply mourn the departure of their beloved mother and best friend.

The funeral services were held at the residence Wednesday morning at 9o'clock, conducted by the Rev. W. D. CATER of the M. E. church of this city. Deceased was a faithful member of the Presbyterian church, but in the absence of her pastor, the Rev. Ira W. BARNETT, who is spending his vacation in Colorado, Mr. CATER officiated.

Internment was made in Oakwood cemetery.
