(4) OBITUARY.
DIED, on the 30th of November, at her residence near Cool Spring, in Pulaski county, Mrs. Elizabeth Methvin, aged about 70 years. The deceased was a native of Mecklenburg county, Va., and removed to this State more than 35 years ago. For many years of her life she was a member of the Baptist Church, and a devout follower of the meek and lowly Saviour, in whom her soul trusted, while passing through the dark shadow of death. She leaves a large circle of mourning friends to join the throng of spirits bright who have gone before.

NOTE: Is this the same "Elizabeth Methvin" mentioned as step-mother in the above (2) Will of Theophilus D. Boothe???
