A GOOD WOMAN'S DEATH.
Editor Hugh Wilson Pays Deserved
Tribute to Judge and Mrs. J. M.
Crosson With Whom He
Lived Nearly Half
The following. taken from a recent
issue of the Abbeville Press and Ban
ner, will be read with interest by
many people in Newberry:
From the Houston, Texas Post, the
Press and Banner copies the follow
ing modest notice of the life, char
acter, and death of Mrs. Crosson, the
beloved wife of J..dge James M. Cros
son, formerly of Newberry, S. C. A
friend in the Post says:
"Mrs. Helen Crosson, died at
Woodville, Texas, November 20, 1904.
She was in perfect health to the mo
ment of her death and passed away
free from pain and appeared to be
sleeping. Before retiring she read to
her husband the beautiful poem in the
Houston Post of Sunday, November
20, entitled "Even This Shall Pass
Away," and asked him to read it and
put in his scrap book, and in less than
three hours she had "passed away."
A fine musician, the last thing she
played on the day of her death was
,e of her favorites, "Nearer, My
God. To Thee." She was the daugh
of John Stobo and Elizabeth
Pope James. She was born in
Laurens, S. C., February 30, 1830, was
married to Maj. J. M. Crosson, April
19, 1848, at the home of her uncle,
Chief Justice O'Neall. of South Car
olina. Major J. M. Crosson, in his
eighty-first year, survives her. They
lived and loved together fifty-six
years, six months and one day.
They came to Texas in 1857. She
left four daughters and one son, all
of Texas, viz: Mrs. Charles Slade, of
Woodville; Mrs. T. S. Hill, wife of
the mayor of Paris; Mrs. C. R. Miller,
of 3505 Louisiana street, Houston; Mrs.
C. L. McCartney, of Brownwood. and
Judge T. T. Crosson, of Ballinger.
She was a sister to Lieutenant Colo
nel George S. James, who as General
S. D. Lee says in his diary. fired the
first shot on Fort Sumter and who
was killed at Bognsboro Gap.
She was a descendant of Lawrence
Washington and Archibald Stobo. the
first Presbyterian preacher in Char
leston, S. C.. and was first cousin to
Y. J. Pope, present chief justice of
South Carolina. She and Major
Crosson celebrated last year in Hous
i. where they then lived, the fifty
fifth anniversary of their marriage.
Fifty-five years ago she joined the
Presbyterian church in Newberry. S.
C., and since that time has been a
beautiful, consecrated Christion. Her
life has been one of marked useful
ness, imparting sunshine and gladness
to others. She was a fond mother,
devoted wife and exempLry Chris
At the time of her death she was a
member of the First Presbyterian
church of Houston. Major Crosson
is a member of Dick Dowling camp.
It was the good fortune of the edi
tor of the Press and Banner tp live
a year in the home of Col. James M.
Crosson, at Newberry. In March
of i856, Col. Crosson and Thos. P.
Slider commenced the publication of
"The Rising Sun," the motto of which
paper being, "It Shines For All." This
editor was employed in the office as
printer and during that year he board
ed in the home of Col. Crosson. The
fact a young man is a boarder in the
household gives him the best of op
portunities for knowi g the character
istics and idiosyncra es of his hosts.
And thus it is that an old man of to
day can testify to Lhe '0o 'bie qualities
of head z"'d heart of Mr. and Mrs.
James M. Croson. Born in the bet
ter walks of life. re-ared in the shad
ow of the church. brouight up under
all the Christian influences, v wi edl
ucation in the best of the literary in
stitutions prepared them for living in
of earth. The nobleness of their na
tures was such that they had good
will for all. For the great multitude
wh, were beneath them they were
rcady to help with the kindly word
and the generous hand. For their
peers, who were few. they were al
ways glad to cheer onward and up
ward in the great struggle of life.
They were always ready to help on
to perfection who sought the higher
and better things. They were free
from malice and envy and conscious
of their own worth. they never sought
to injure the feelings or the good
name of any. They were jealous
of none. Of course people in their
sphere of living had an abhorrance of
evil doing, but ',L-e the Great Physi
cian, they were always ready to ad
minister consolation. Their efforts
were to raise up the fallen and to set.
their feet in the better paths.
In all of a year's close acquaintance
we have no recollection of their ever
'liaving assailed the good name of
any one To these good people is
:he author of this testimonial indebt
ed for guidance and inspiration. And
in the conduct of the Press and Lan
ner for forty years, the lessons of the
good woman, who has just gone to
the beautiful land, have never been
forgotten or disregarded. Her idea was
that profanity was sometimes causea
by anger or other exciting circum
stances, but that vulgarity was always
cold blooded, offensive and inexcus
She thought character was too sac
red to be lightly assailed, and, while
she condemned the wrong, she never
consented to the assassination of
The mind of the young printer was
then in its formative state, and the
lessons which these good people
taught took hold of his nature.
These matters are only mentioned
I to show that sometimes a word,
which the speaker may forget with
the passing hour, may be far reach
ing in its influence, and as lasting as
the everlasting hills.
Col. James M. Crosson was held in
the higiest esteem by the people of
Newberry county, where he lived. His
genial nature and his generous heart
made him friends of all. His fbility
ard his education brot,ght him to the
front rank.among the best men of
Newberry. His acquirements and his
nobleness of character made him not
only a son of whom South Carolina
has reason to be proud, btrt it n'yde
him a friend whose counsels are held
in grate&'l remen-berance by those
who knew him best.
