WEDNESDAY, .U NK IS, 1?HJ2.
Dealli of Mrs. C. A. Recd.
Thfie have been many sorrowing
hearts in Anderson since f?.40 o'clock
.Saturday evening. At that hour re
lentless death entered one of tho hap
piest of Anderson's hornee and laid a
remorseless hand upon her whose lov
ing heart) thoughtful mind and will
ing hands had fashioned and kept
bright and inviting an ideal home, und
whoso gentle, noblo qualities endeared
her to her friends while living and
makes her memory au unceasing de
Mrs. Fannie Kingsley Hoed, wife of
Mr. C. A. lieed, has passed from earth
to heaven. While clinging tenderly to
the ties that bound her to earth-hus
band, children, grandchildren and lov
ing friends-she was ready lor the call
which means separation for a season
The sad circumstances of her early
childhood, tl?e losing of both father
and motlier and being au only child.
served to develop a tender, clinging na
ture, which in lier life ns wife, mother
and grandmother grew so strong that
though the severing ol' those ties were
in response to a summon from heaven,
those who stood by wept as did also
those whos intimate association had
acquainted them with her depth ot love.
When told by the devoted husband
that sile must try to get well, she must
not leave them, she replied, "Uh,
'ClilV,* I do not want to leave you; you
know I have never left you one whole
day during our happy married iife, but
our Saviour has called and I must go,
and I am so glad I nm ready to go."
Kindness of heart was her chief
characteristic and made beautiful her
wholo nature. There was no selfish
ness, nc envy, no hate, only generosity,
charity and good will. This character
istic kindness went out to nil
who were so fortunate as to
know her and made them love her, but
it was in lier home particularly that it
ch' vMadzed into greatest beauty, mak
i- : hat home a delight to every mera
'..?.; of tho family and creating in the
heurts of the domestics a devotion
which made service n work of love.
Tho deceased was born June 10th,
1840, at the Kingsley old pince, three
miles below Helton. Her mother was
Miss Francis Emiline Broyles, daugh
ter of Mnj. Cain Broyles. Her father
was Chester Kingsley, a prominent
plauter, originally I rom the State of
Virginia. She was an only child. Her
mother and father both died while she
was an infant and Mnj. Cain Broyles
and wife, the maternal grandparents,
took her to their home in Greenville,
Tennessee, where she was reared and
sent to school until about fifteen years
old. Thu grandmother having died at
this time the grandfather moved with
tho young girl to Dalton, Ga., where
his son, A. H. llroyles, was living, nud
there tho deceased completed her edu
In 1803, when tho federal troops were
occupying those portions of Tennes
see thoy had overrun, and the mutter
ings of war indicated that North Geor
gia, embracing Dalton, was soon to be
the theatre of bloody conflict, it was
determined by the Broyles family to
refugee to this State. In the fall of
1803 Mr. A. It. Broyles, accompanied
by his wife and the deceased, reached
Anderson. A home was bought at
Sloan's Ferry, on Seneca Hiver, and
there shortly afterward the family,
including Maj. Cain Broyles and the
deceased, took up their abode.
lt was while en route to Anderson
that Mr. C. A. Reed, then a young
Confederate soldier, met tho deceased.
The introduction was secured at Bel
ton, and tho ref ugeeing party w.-re in
vited by the gallant young soldier to
the home of his father, Judge Reed, in
this city, where they spent a week.
The soldier was ordered to Virginia
but the impressions made upon him by
the young girl were lasting, lu 1804
he was wounded and sent home. His
right arm lind been given in defence of
his country. Cupid had made deeper
wounds meanwhile on the hearts of
both moldier and uinideu, and when he
made known his love aud gave her the
opportunity, she declared she would be
his right arm through life, and never
were truer words spoken. They were
married October 20th, 1364, at the
Sloan Ferry home of the bride. One
child was tho fruit of this marriage,
Mrs. Hellen Lig?n, wife of R. S. Ligon,
Of this city.
Not only in the home and among
friends did the noble character of this
good woman show itself, but in the
church and all the societies of the
church and wherever there wns an op
portunity to relieve Bullering humanity
and to contribute to lift the humble
and lowly to mauhood and its oppor
tunities. She identified herself with
tbe church at an early age in Tennes
see and becamo a member of the An
derson Baptist Church shortly after her
marriage, where she has been honored
and loved for her good works.
The death of the deceased was the
result of heart trouble, which reached
an alarming stage about three weeks
ago. She suffered greatly at times, but
for some time before the end carno she
waa free from pain and to tho very last
remained perfectly conscious. Her
death waa as if she had only fallen
??deep, so peacefully did she go. And,
?;ier all, it Is but sleep, preceding a
The funeral eorvices were held at the
First Baptist Church, this city, at 6
