In Memory of Mrs. Futrell.  ---  On April 22,1907, the death angel visited the home of D.W. Futrell and took from him his loving wife. She had been an invalid for two years or more from a complication of diseases and during her last hours suffered greatly. We feel that our loss was her gain. She was about 57 years of age, a member of the Baptist Church at Shady Grove and will be greatly missed  in this vicinity, as she was never too tired to visit the sick and lend a helping hand to their wants and needs, but no one will miss her like her dear and only child.
  Mrs. Futrell leaves a husband and one child; and oh, how hard it is for her boy to give her up. He said he had nothing to regret on his part---he never gave his dear mother any trouble and was such a loving child, staying by her bedside in her last hours and doing all in his power to alleviate her suffering.
  She was buried in the Boyd grave yard, near Geo. Sholar's.    Her Cousin.
