Was born in Virginia Dec. 2, 1832, left there when a child and came to East Tennessee. At the age of 16 she joined the M. E. church, South, in which lived until the death angel called her home. In 1850, Dec. 19, she was married to Malcome M. Jaquess. There were nine children born to this union of holy matrimony, eight of whom are yet living so far as we know. Soon after the marriage in 1851, they moved to middle Tennessee, where they raised their family and lived until 1897, when they came to Texas and have lived for the last several years in the community where she died, and had many warm friends there. Some who were friends in Tennessee, were there to wit: Russell Scithy and Oliver Lee, Tom Peek and family, Sampson Bartlett's family, Lee West, and Jeff Roberts, and I don't know how many more. Five of her daughters and the writer (M. S. Jaquess) were there during her last days; the writer arrived Tuesday nigh and she lived until Thursday morning. My father was sitting on the porch trying to look for me, but it was so dark he could not see me until I was in a few feet of him but when he spoke to me and mother heard my voice she knew me. She was in her right mind until the last. She went to sleep about 2:20 a. m. Thursday morning and never woke up again. She died without struggle or groan. It brought to our mind the song ""Asleep in Jesus, Blessed Sleep,"" from which none ever wakes to weep. The Pastor of the M. E. church and Harvey Delaney, another old time Tennessee friend, preached the funeral at the M. E. church in Munday, Texas. We then went to what is known as the Johnson Cemetery, where the remains were laid to rest until God sees fit to have Gabriel blow the trumpet thus announcing that great and notable day of the Lord. Our father is making his home with Mr. and Mrs. John Fleming, Munday, Texas." [Date: 12/7/1911, Vol. IX, No. 49, Page 11]
