MRS J. M. SPEAR
Mrs Spear Former Resident Of This City Dies At Her Home in Tenn News was received in this city the first of the week, of the death of Mrs J.M. Spear at her home in Cedar Hill, Tenn.
Mrs Spear had been in declining health for a number of years , and several times during her residence in this city she was very low, and on more than one occasion her friends desparred of her life.
Capt. J.M. Spear and his wife, a refined, lovable and most estimable lady, moved to Princeton soon after the Ohio
Valley railroad was built into Princeton, which was about the year 1888. They made their home in this city continuously until last October when they moved back to the old homestead at Cedar Hill, Tenn. Few people ever resided in Princeton who made more friends, and were accordingly more admired and loved then Capt. Spear and his wife and all Princeton people recall with admiration the constant devotion and tender love of the husband for the wife. And the sympathy for the bereaved husband in his old age is indeed deep. The remains were interred at Cedar Hill, on Friday and were accompanied to the last solemn resting place by a concourse of relatives and friends who knew her but to love her, and lived but to praise her. May the growing generation read the page of her beautiful life but to copy it. Caldwell Co - 1906
