October 28, 1896
Tuesday morning between 4 and 5 o’clock, Miss Ellen Taylor, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. W. W. Taylor, died at her father’s home, six miles east of Farmerville.
Miss Ellen had been sick for several weeks with a slow fever. Three weeks ago she showed signs of improvements and her friends had reason to hope for a speedy recovery, but she took a relapse the first of last week and up to the hour of her death gradually grew worse.
Death is always sad, but it is particularly so when, as in this case, it ends the bright and hopeful life of a young lady just ripening into womanhood. To the bereaved relatives The Gazette joins their may friends in offering sympathy.
