Her remains were brought here last Sun day from Hartford, Ky., where she died, and was accompanied by her son, Mr. George ykes, and her daughters and son-in-law Mr. and Mrs. Stafford Hewett, Mrs. Margaret W illiams, of Hartford. Ky. Mrs Barbour was Miss Emma Pauline Moore, of Columbus, and was a noted belle and beauty of those wonderful ante-bellum davs. She married Col. Columbus Sykes, son of M. G. A. Sykes, and lived in the old homestead for several years. Her husband was killed during the war by a falling tree; he had just return ed to his command from a furlough that was granted him, to bring back the body of bis brother who had een killed in battle. Mrs. feykes was a brilliant figure in those days of the old South that leld so much of tragedy and ro mance. Mrs Sykes afterwards married Mr. Pollock Barbour, of Louisville, and never lived here again, but this was the place and the neonle she oved and where she wished her body to lie. She was buried on the Sykes family plot in the Odd ows Cemeterv. A rather strange coincident was that she was hurried on the U. D. C. Decoration Day. This organization was organized by her soon after the war. Ellen Bumpass, a member of the Maj. S. A. Jonas chapter of the )aughters of the Confederacy, placed on her grave a magnificent basket 11 o'clock will be preached espe cially for the young converts and those taking membership during the revival.
