Harrison, Martha Ann
Departed this life, on Thursday, the 6th of September, at the house of Mr. Henry McClung of Staunton, Mrs. Martha Ann Harrison, the wife of Capt. Wm. Harrison of Caroline county, in the 30th year of her age, after a protracted illness of several months, leaving so affectionate husband, and two interesting little children, to bemoan their irreparable bereavement. Mrs. Harrison had been laboring for many months under that most afflicting disease, consumption. She was induced, through the advice of her physician, to undertake a trip to the Red Sulphur Springs, with the hope of arresting her disease. After much pain and suffering, she reached Staunton on the 12th of August, where she lingered until death put an end to her suffering. Mrs. Harrison had never joined any church, but had long enjoyed the consoling belief, that the medintorial sacrifice of a Saviour had made her peace with her Maker. She said to the writer of this, but a day or two before her death, that though she should "pass through the valley and shadow of death," she would "fear no evil." She was frequently engaged in solemn appeals to a throne of grace-saying (euolgy continues - no other names mentioned).
