MARSHALL -- "In Memoriam -- Among the list of passengers reported lost by the burning of the steamer Stonewall, on the Mississippi river below St. Louis, was Mrs M. E. Gregg; wife of our fellow citizen, Col. John Gregg. The news of her loss falls with crushing weight upon her lonely and disconsolate husband, who was daily expecting her arrival, and the hearts of her many devoted friends and relatives in our community."


The following is inscribed on a Monument in the Marshall City Cemetery:

"A Mother Comes Home to Her Daughters. In memory of M. Eliza McClellan, wife of John Gregg, born September 16, 1818, Lost on the Steamer Stonewall, October 27, 1869."

The monument lies between those of her husband and daughters Nola and Alla, all enclosed within an iron fence in the Gregg Family Burying Ground.
