by the Calverts, wealthy white people during slavery. She had worked
in many white homes and found it a pleasure to work and comfort those in need.
She was the mother of two daughters who married ministers, Mary Tinsley
and Nannie Martin wife, wife of E. Martin of Madisonville, Ky. who with several
grandchildren survive.
Funeral services were held at the residence Friday P.M. by her pastor and burial
