On the 27th ultimo at the residence of her son, F. B. Sexton, his mother, Mrs. Emily Sexton, in the 55th year of her age. The above notice is taken from the "Red Land Express," and was read by the writer on yesterday, and as he knew her long and loved her much, begs that you will allow him to offer this small tribute of affection to her worth and sacred memory, and one word of consolation to the unhappy and bereaved son through the columns of the Telegraph. Mother Sexton was a native of Lincoln county, Ga., married Dec. 1st, 1822, to Doct. Samuel Sexton of Alexandria, La., removed to San Augustin, Texas, where she had ever since resided. Doct. S. having died in 1841, she was left a widow with her only son. She was a model woman in all the attributes and virtues of both head and heart, that belong to the relations of her sex. A good wife in its fullest acceptation, an exemplary Christian always at her post, a noble and true mother of as noble and true a son-upon whom all of her life, she has tenderly lavished all her hopes and earthly affection. There are few such mothers on earth. The relations that existed between mother and son were perfect. She was his only bosom friend. In boyhood she nursed and watched over him, and entered tenderly into all his boyish plans and hopes, cheered him in gloom and warned him if he wandered into strange paths of temptation and danger. In a word, she was his only guardian and protector in childhood, his companion and confidante in youth, and his ministering angel, confessor and counselor in manhood; and she was blessed because she saw in her boy Frank-the child-the youth-the man-all, that a mother's proud heart could hope to realize, and all who know him know how well she performed her duty to her charge to her country-and to her God. I know it is wrong to invade the sanctity of private griefs, but I will say to the heart-stricken, heart-broken son: Be comforted my friend, let me mingle my tears of sadness and affection with thine, in the waters of bitterness, and though far away from the scene of your great sorrow and affliction, know that "A friend in deed," feels all nay more, than the heart can speak. Remember, that all angel mothers too who live, must die, and she was equal to that death. As she was, be ye also, prepared for that death which is sure to follow life and is eternal
