Grandma Sullivan lived her four
score years and passed away at Charl
ton Hall, in Laurens County, in Sep
tember, 1916.
I do not know the exact date of her
birth, of her marriage to my grand
father, nor have I now before me the
exact date of her death,
These, after all, are minor matters
birth, death and burial-these are only
worth while and important in so far
as they relate to life.
Life Is the thing of vital and tre
mendous importance and signillcance.
I shall, therefore, write of Grand
ma's life-her life here and that which
I know she is taking part in now.
She was my grandfather's second
wife and he was her second husband.
She first tmaririel a Prince. lier maid

no children of her own, by either husw
band.
When she married my grandfather.

young, almost infants, aid some who
had reached adult. life.

of a itman of unusual strength of mind
and character-a man who was large

and vim of men who have learned in

father, like children---they too had
mllnds of their own.
The establishment was a large one
