Mrs. Julia F. Holstein.
"After the toil and trouble,
There cometh a day of rest;
After the weary conflict;
Peace on the Saviour's breast."
Just as the Sabbath morn was
bursting into the sweet calm of a
golden day, in the leafy month' of
June, when the flowers are brightest
and when the birds were singing
their most jpyous notes, th? gentle
spirit of Mrs. Julia F. Holoteln took
its flight to her home in Heaven, on
t?he 13th day of June, 1909.
Almost sixty/summers ago Miss
Julia F. Dozier was married to. Mr.
Moses N. Holstein aind as a beatiti
Cul blushing bride went to the de
lightful Ridge land where 6he has
lived solong and which she loved so
well in her airy home amid the
shady ?a^s. She was a sister of1
James A. Dozier, Esq., and Dr. Al
len Dozier, bcjth of whom were typi
cal Southern gentlemen, and Mrs. L.
Charlton her sister and playmate
during the happy days bf childhood
is /.eft now alone and heart broken,
like the last rose of summer.
Mrs. Holstein had to pass through
the horrors of theJ3onfederate war
and its direful consequences, and. if
the names of the : faithful wives of
the Confederate veterans should be
carved on the teblets of the monu
ment soon to \he erected to their
honor by the State, then that of Ju
lia F. Holstein would be among
those at the head of the list. .
She endured the shock with noble
fortitude and reared up a famjly of
children of whom any one might
well be proud and during her long
married life she never had a death
in the home, as all her children are
now living and doing well. No crepe
eyer hung on her hospitable door.
Her children were all about,her
when she passed away and they to
gether with her devoted husband did
all that human skill could^ do to pro
mote her comfort.
.The leading characteristics of the
good woman werehumility,practical
industry and unselfish generosity.
She was as modestas the violet, and
without any of that ostentatious
pride of those who love conspicuous
places, she loved to sit in the back
ground and be most seen through
her work. She was the perfection
of a domestic wife; devoted'to her
husband and children and given to
generosity and charity. No negro
ever; ever went out of her back yard
hungry, and several of her trusted
old-time negro servants came up, a
distance of about 25 miles,'frora her
plantation, to attend her funeral ser
vice^} and. shed tin cere tears over her
grave. In the w^rds pf King. Lem
uel: ff ,
"The heart ol' her husband doth
safely trust in her. She stretched
her hands .-to the poor; yea, she
reacheth forth her hands to the nee
dy-She looketh well to the ways of
her household and eateth not the
the bread of idleness; many daugh
ters "have done virtuously but she
excalleth them all."
With all her practical diligence,
she was a devoted Christian and nev
er forgot the religious training of
the days of her youth, by her noble
father, Rev. Allen Dozier" who was
a Baptist minister, and she taught
the Bible to her children both bj
precept and example.
She was the embodiment of al]
that made up' the home and such a
woman as one would naturally thinl
of when listening to that preciouf
i song "Home Sweet Home."
Amid the many beautiful thingf
'. in this world one of the most admi
1 rabie was the warm attachment o:
this devoted \ couple. How sh<

coming from the Ridge and how he
would wait sjo patiently about her
bedside for so many weary months,
as Burns says:
"John Andersen my Jo John,
We clamed the hill thegither;
And'many a cm.ty day.John,
We've had wi ane anither;
Now we mann totter down John,
But hand in hand we'll gb,
And sleep thegither at the foot
John Anaersen my JoT"
?She was beautiful in face and
form, beautiful in character and in
her Christian faith and devotion to
duty and hath left a rich inheritance
to her family in her noble, generous
and unselfish life.
We all do honor to the mission
ary woman and justly so too, but
still more honor is due OUR like Mrs.
Holstein, who by standing by the
home, makes it possible for some to
ut into foreign lands.
"If a blossom should be placed on
her grave for every good deed she
did during her life, she would sleep
today under an avalanche of flow
By her long and uncomplaining
languishing for several years of suf
fering, she was purified by the lov
ing Lord, for that upper and better
kingdom. She was "buried in the
Edgefield Baptist cenietery in the
plot of her faithful and only son Mr.
J. D. Holstein and her grave is so
near that of her grand child, Julia,
that the same rose can shed its fra
grance over both. And we are
persuaded that she is now with her
precious grand children and other
loved ones on that happy golden

faithf ul[fainily, who deserve so much
gratitude for their gifted constancy
Dn such sad occasions, sang some
very-appropriate songs over her pre
nions body as it rested under an av
alanche of flowers in the church.
Dr. C. E. Burts paid a most tender
tribute to her sainted memory and
upoke with beautiful pathos. While
the procession was moving to the
grave across the churchyard a mock
ing bird was singing in soft sweet
ness, as they so often sang in the
oaksjibout her home on the Ridge
during her long life.
She lived beyond the three score
s,nd ten, and being nearly seventy
five years of age she lingered
