Ringgold Record, 1873
NOTICE of DEATH.
DIED, - Another gem of beauty and priceless worth has gone to deck the Mediators Crown.
On the 5th day of Aug. Flora Ellen, daughter of Martin and Elizabeth HUFFMAN (sic) of Middle Fork Tp., a little girl of three
and a half summers, departed this life to be with Christ, and to dwell with the angels. The cup of life just to her lips
she pressed, Found the taste bitter and declined the rest; Then looking upward to the realms of day, She gently signed her
little soul away. --B. D. HIMEBAUGH.
