In Memory Of Mrs. Cornelia Scott.
The subject of this sketch was born
and raised in ihe upper section of
Newberry county. After she grew up
she became the wife of John W.
Scott who settled near her old home.
This union prov.ed to be a happy one,
and for a period of thirty-five years
or more they lived together sharing
in confidence and love the common
experience of life.
Her disease known at first to be a
bad one made steady progress and in
the latter months of her life develop
ed into conditions which brough'
about much extreme suffering. Ma
lignant as the disease was and great
as was her suffering yet she lived for
a considerable time, until finally on
the morning of 1he 22nd of June sur
rounded by her husband, children
and friends she passed away. Of the
deceased much could be written. She
possessed moral and social gifts of a
high order. As a Christian 'her faith
was steady and her convictions of du
ty were consistent with her profession.
In the home life her virtues shone
out in queenly splendor. Warm and
sympathetic in her nature and gener
Ots almost to a fault, there she drew
around 'her a large number of admir
ing and loving friends. Doubtless
the forces of influence which went
out from her home life will gather
momentum as time advances, and will
widen and widen until they break inl
upon the eternal shore.
She is gone and the vacancy in the
home is a sad one. She will be miss
ed by many but she leaves behind her
the legacy of a Christian life and an!
example worthy to be followed.
May the memory of her life cheer
ad( comfort the bereft husband and
children, and may they- all he gathered
at last in the happy reunion in the
