Martha A. Coaker (Croaker being the original spelling) was the wife of William Christopher (Billy) Dyess.
GONE TO REST.
After nearly a century's sojourn on
earth, Mrs. Martha A. Dyess departed
this life at the home of her daughter,
Mrs. A. 0. Gandy near Waynesboro,
Miss., on Wednesday, January 4,
1911, in the 93d year of her age.
Mrs. Dyess is survived by six
children, three sons and three dughters,:
viz: James Dyess near Waynesboro,
Theodore Dyess of Covington, La., F.
S. Dyess near Laurel, and Mrs. Ellza-
beth Whitney, Mrs. A. G. Gandy and
Mrs. Eliza Mcllwain all living near
Waynesboro; also 36 grand children,
76 great grand children and 3 great,
great grand children mourn her de-
mise. Deceased lived to see the fifth
generation.
With her husband, Mrs. Dyess was
among the pioneer settlers in Wayne
county, where she had lived for nearly
three-quarter of a century and for
many years she was a communicant In
the Methodist church, a true mother
in Israel and a defender of the faith,
and she died as she had lived In the
triumph of the faith and a hope for a
home In the "mansion on high not
made with hands, prepared for the
faithful from the foundation of the
world,"
Mr. Frank S. Dyess, near Laurel,
was summoned by wire to the bedside
of his aged and beloved mother and
reached there just before the sepa-
ration of the spirit from the weary
body. The remains were consigned
to the earthly tomb In the family
burial ground at Mount Pleasant
church near Waynesboro, there to
await the resurrection of the dead on
the Last Great Day.
The bereaved children and other
mourning relatives have the sympathy
of many friends.
