Harrell, Mary Yancey
Poplarville, Miss., June 3
Mrs. Mary Yancey Harrell, widow of the Hon. John Harrell, and the only daughter of the distinguished state's rights orator of Alabama, Hon. William L. Yancey, died in Birmingham, Ala., yesterday, and was buried here today by the side of her husband. Mrs. Harrell inherited a large measure of her father's personal magnetism, his charm of conversation, his strength of character and his genius. Her life was an exemplification of that of the ideal antebellum southern woman, and her death leaves vacant a place in a large circle of friends in the south which can never be filled. She was the mother of Mrs. L.W. McCants, of this place, and of Mrs. Russell, of Birmingham, Ala.
