In Memoriam
Mrs. Mary E. Streetman, wife of Mr. M. C. Streetman, and daughter of M. E. Cook, was born in Taylor County, Ga., January 1st 1859, and departed this life in Calhoun County, Fla., November 2nd 1889, after about two weeks illness. Her health had been declining for several months. In a short time the spirit took its flight into the glory world to await the coming of her husband and children. She was a member of the Free Will Baptist Church. She was a Christian lady and much loved by all who knew her. She called her little children to her bedside, kissed them all and repeated, "I am going home and want all to go with me." She was sensible of her death, but suffered great pains. Oh! how sad for the mother, husband, four little children and other relatives to have to mourn her loss. Her form was laid to rest near her home; prayer by Mittie Duke at the grave.

Why lament the Christian dying?
Why indulge in tears or gloom?
Calmly on the Lord relying,
He can greet the opening tomb.


(*note- husband's name is reversed in obit, should be C. M. for Charles Mack)

Mary and Charles were married on May 25, 1878 in Taylor County, GA by W.D. Grace, JP
