It is my painful duty to announce the death of our beloved sister Jane Burford. She departed this life on Monday the 21st of July 1879. She leaves 6 sons and 5 daughters and an aged companion and many friends to mourn her loss. Her sickness was cancer of the mouth. She was born in North Carolina, North Hampton County, on the 11th day of October 1816, moved to Tennessee in 1830; was married to A. M Burford in 1833; joined the church of Christ in 1841 and lived a consistent member of that body up to the time of her death. I became acquainted with sister Burford the 15th of March 1858 and have been very intimate with the family as neighbor and physician and always found her kind and affectionate. But we should not grieve after her as one that had no hope. She remarked to brother Burford before she died that she had no fears and she bore her afflictions, though they lasted twelve months, with all the patience that could be expected of anyone. Brother Burford, hold out a few more days, or years at most and you will be united with sister Burford in the better land where there will be no more parting and shedding of tears. But all will be peace and joy; may all her Children imitate her Christian example.
