We are pained to announce the death of Mrs John C. Boxley.
The deceased was one of the most lovable ladies in our county.
She was universally kind and attentive to her friends and the memory of her gentleness and womanly character will live in the hearts of those who knew her.
The funeral was preached at the Christian church Wednesday at 2 p.m. by Rev. L.W. Welsh, the interment taking place at the city cemetery.
Hopkinsville New Era May 1886


Died in her 54th year at her home near Hopkinsville, Ky;
Mrs Judeth A. Boxley, wife of John Boxley, on the 11th of May, 1886.
She leaves a devoted husband, one daughter and three sons to mourn her loss.
She was born and spent her early life in old Virginia, near Louisa Courthouse.
Was the daughter of Robert Hart, married John Boxley in 1862, and in 1867 moved to Christian county, Ky; where they have lived ever since.
Sister Boxley was a godly woman, having united with the Christian church when a girl, has lived a consistent Christian life. Being a close bible student she was ever ready to give a reason for her hope in a better life, and always ready to cheer the fainting and weak, help those in need. Her deeds of love were done without ostentation. She was the center of light and love in her family and her neighborhood, and although she had been a great sufferer for years yet she was patient and cheerful amidst it all. She realized her condition in her last illness and frequently spoke of her early departure -- was willing and anxious to depart and be at rest if it was God's will. May her heart-stricken husband and loving children remember her councils and loving advice, and so live that they may meet her in that sweet haven of eternal rest.
