"The Gospel Messenger", Volume 10, No. 8 – August 1888:


Mrs. Martha R. Truett.

Was born in Hancock County, Ga., April 22nd, 1812. She was the daughter of John and Sarah Chapman, of said county, and lived with her parents in the counties of Monroe, Upson and Talbot, where she was married to Brother Adonaga Truett April 9th, 1835. In 1849 they moved to Harris, and in 1876 they moved to Chambers County, Ala., where they lived only one year, and moved to Randolph County in 1877, where she quietly breathed her last March 16, 1888. She was paralyzed March 15th, at ten o'clock a.m., and suffered only about 24 hours, during which time she never spoke. She was interred in the cemetery at Darien March 17th. She never annexed herself to any church, but claimed the Methodist as the church of her choice. She lived to be 76 years old, lacking six days. She leaves an aged husband (84 years) and five daughters to mourn their loss. Her two sons died in the late war. Brother Editor, I was present when Mother Truett passed away and crossed the cold stream of death, we hope, to a brighter and happier home beyond. Brother Truett was absent from home when this sad event occurred and was sent for, but failed to reach home in time to see her breathe her last. Four of her daughters were present, who drank deep of the dregs of that bitter cup. To the grief stricken husband and daughters we condole, and hope that they may meet their loving companion and mother where parting will be no more.

-Your brother in Christ, W. A. Welch.
