Died in St. Augustine on the 22nd inst, at the residence of Major Kingsley B Ginas Mrs. Martha A Williams, relet of the late William Thaddeus Williams of Savannah. She needs no eulogy. Her witness is in heaven and her record is on high.” In all the relations of life she was given grace to adorn her profession of Christ by a well walk and conversation. Her life was one of peculiar suffering, but she hath ceased from her labors and her works do follow her. She loved her Savior, and we doubt not, “hath entered into his rest.” Her memory is enshrined in the hearts of those who knew her best. “Those that he planted in the house of the Lord, shall flourish in the courts of our God”.
