The Ringgold Record, 1894

She was married to John Dunlap Nov. 24, 1889, and died aged 23 years 5 months and 11 days. She leaves a husband, and a little son and daughter. Mrs. DUNLAP early united with the M. E. church, and always possessed a devotional spirit. In 1890, she joined the Mt. Ayr Baptist church, and proved herself a faithful devoted member. As a christian, wife, mother and daughter, she was faithful and was respected in all these relations in life. The funeral services took place from the Baptist church on Sunday, April 15th, 1894. Her pastor Rev. D. G. DAILEY officiated. It was indeed a christian funeral. There is much sympathy for Mr. DUNLAP and the motherless children.
