On the night of the 13th of March, at the residence of her son, Mr. Wm. M. NETTLES, Mrs. Elizabeth NETTLES, wife of Mr. John E. NETTLES, formerly of Chatham county. Mrs. NETTLES belonged to one of the oldest families in the county. A family noted for their integrity, fidelity, and high sense of honor. She was no exception. With her heart open to every cry of distress, her sympathies entered the house of mourning with her person, and her hand was ever ready to administer to the comforts of those around her, and her self-sacrificing disposition was apparent to all who knew her. Her old friends and neighbors of Chatham will cherish her memory. She was a member of the Methodist church. During a protracted and painful illness, she exemplified that she was no stranger to the promises of God - showing a resignation to His will that could only emanate from a heart that had yielded to the wooings of the Holy Spirit. "Precious in the sight of the Lord tis the death of His Saints."
