Sophia has gone from earth to heaven, to join her parents gone before; snatched away a lovely bud to blossom in a fairer clime before the rude blasts of earth crushed her pure heart.

Mrs. Geo. W. Baggs.
Mrs. Baggs, whose maiden name was Taphena McMillin, died Nov. 13th, A. D. 1875. She was a lady of more than ordinary mental and personal attractions. With the falling of the leaves of Autumn the body of one has been consigned to the tomb, whose lovely presence will long be missed in Vinton. She has passed away from the place which has known her so long and so pleasantly, and save in memory, those who loved her so well, will know her no more. She was a gentle Christian woman. Words are not rich enough to tell all that such a woman is. There is nothing in all the universe so good, so true, so beautiful, as a Christian woman. For she had received into her heart, till it shone forth as a part of her character, the love of her Divine Master. My pen lingers lovingly upon her name, and I would fain say something of her, whose name is beyond the need of human praise, that would make her example more beautiful and endearing to the living. She was industrious, kind and attentive to her family, and was always ready where help was needed.
When great sorrow fell upon her, and ceaseless suffering, the light from Heaven seemed to radiate her face, and with an angel's patience, a child-like smile, and an unfaltering faith, she went down into the valley of shadows. But no eloquence can soothe him who loved her and knew her best--her husband. To hear him speak of his wife, as he knew her when a girl at school, when he married her the loveliest girl in all the country side, when he received into his heart the fragrance of her example, when he watched over her, dying, only to marvel at the endurance and sweetness of her patience, is to learn what a force spiritual development, what a ceaseless inspiration it could exercise over those around her.
Precious to those who live is the memory of such a life. E. T. Mc.Vinton, O., Dec. 27, 1875. [Gallipolis Journal, Thursday, November 18, 1875]

DIED---At the residence of James Blake, in this place, Mary, widow of the late Samuel Bing, aged 78. [Gallipolis Journal, (Gallipolis, Oh.) Thursday, August 30, 1855 - Sub. by Kathy McDaniel]
MRS. MARY BING, wife of Samuel Bing, deceased, was a native of Augusta county, Virginia, and emigrated to Ohio in the year 1805, about fifty years ago. On her arrival in this State, she found it nearly an unbroken forest, and inhabited by the red man of the forest. Having shared the toil and peril of emigants she was finally settled upon a farm not far from the mouth of Campaign creek. Here she raised a family of children all of whom have settled in life. Mrs. B., enjoyed generally good health and had been blessed with an iron constitution.
She was a kind and affectionate Mother---and a good neighbor. Her sickness was of short duration having been suddenly struck with the hand of death. It was my privilege to visit her at her son-in-law's Mr. James Blake, where on the 26th of August she finished her earthly course in her 79th year.
As she awoke from sleep, and as her reason seemed restored, I asked her if she was trusting in the Savior, she responded "yes!"
Thus has passed away one much beloved and esteemed. May this affecting dispensation of Providence prove to her children, grandchildren and friends a blessing. E. V. BING.

LINES FOR THE MOURNING FRIENDS.
By Mrs. C. G. Blagg.
Our little Lena is buried to-day; Gone--down in the depths of the church-yard clay, Up in the sky so dim and gray, Who willt take care of our baby? Who will kiss her?--her waxen feet, Which had learned to talk, and her small hands sweet, Where we left a white rose--as was meet-- Who will kiss our little baby? Who will teach her?--her wings to fly, Her tiny limbs their new work to ply, Her soft sweet lips to sing gloriously-- Oh! who will teach our little baby? We have kindred who long ago died--We speak of them now with our tears all dried; They may know our pretty one come to their side, And be glad to see our little baby.
Christ, born of woman, hear, oh! hear! Thine angels are far off--she seems near, Give Thou our child to our friends so dear,
And we'll weep no more for our little baby. [Gallipolis Journal, (Gallipolis, Oh.) Thursday, January 13, 1876 - Sub. by Kathy McDaniel]
