"Mrs. Pauline Gore Morgan
Mrs. Pauline Gore Morgan, age 90, one of the oldest and most beloved ladies of Jackson county, died at her country home two miles North of Gainesboro, Wednesday night, May 27, after an illness of several weeks of infirmities of old age.
Funeral service was held Thursday afternoon conducted by the Rev. A.W. Beasley, pastor of the Methodist church. Interment in the Gore cemetery on Roaring river.
Mrs. Morgan is survived by five children, Mrs. W.F. Sadler, Miss Ella Morgan, Daniel C. Morgan, of this place; Mrs. Henry Haile, of Cookeville and J.M. Morgan, of Aberdeen, Miss., and one brother, Samuel G. Gore of Roaring river.
Mrs. Morgan was an every day Christian. The beautify (sic) influences of a pure religion were spread over a life and character as spotless and charming as was ever possessed by any of the noble women who have lived and died during the ages that are gone. It is difficult to pay a fitting tribute to the memory of so noble a woman--one whose every day life was embellished by the most charming and lovable attributes of her sex. A perfect lady at all times--under all circumstances, she seemed born to inspire the love and respect of all who were so fortunate as to be acquainted with her."
Job Meekly Morgan
