Death of Mrs. Hunter

Mrs. Mollie Hunter, a highly respected lady, the widow of B. F. Hunter, who died thirty-nine years ago, passed beyond the veil at the home of her son, Mr. Josiah Hunter, near Gradyville, last Saturday morning, aged sixty-seven years.

The deceased was the oldest child of James L. Johnston, who was an influential citizen in his life time.  Her mother is yet living, and is about ninety years old.

Early in life the subject of this notice made a profession of her faith in Christ, united with the Christian Church, and was a consistent member until the summons came.

Besides Joseph [Josiah?] Hunter, she leaves one son, in Texas, J. J. Hunter, and quite a number of grandchildren, Paul and Victoria Hughes, of this place, being two of the number.  She is also survived by three sisters, Mrs. Robert Conover, Mrs. Rufus Price and Mrs. R. L. Tandy.

The funeral services were held in the Christian Church, this place, Sunday afternoon, conducted by Eld. Z. T. Williams, many relatives and friends being present.  The interment was beside the grave of her departed husband in the city cemetery.
