NOTICE of DEATH.
DIED -- Died - March 11th 1885 at Kew, of lung fever "Pearl" daughter of G. L. and Anna M. FALLS. Aged one year, eight
months, and sixteen days "Pearl" was a sweet lovely child, appeared an angel on earth, she was loved by all who knew her.
Brother and sister, FALLS have the sympathy of all their friends. We laid little "Pearl" in the Centenial (sic, should be Centenary) Cemetery March
12th. Funeral was conducted at the Centenial church, by the Pastor.A host of angels flying,
Through cloudless skies impelled
Upon the earth beheld
A "Pearl" of beauty lying,
Worthy to glitter bright
In heavens vast hall of light
They spread their Pinions o'er it,
The little "Pearl" which shone
With luster all its own.
And then on high they bore it,
Where glory has its birth
But left the shell on earth.
