IN MEMORY OF
Mrs. Elizabeth Earl Galloway
Mrs. Elizabeth Earl Galloway, aged
85 years, died June 3rd, 1931, at her
home in Old Toxaway section where
she had lived from early childhood.
She was the last surviving member of
a large and influential family, a
daughter of Capt. Wm. J. and Jean
Galloway. She was married to Jas.
Earl Galloway, a prominent Baptist
minister of said section, to which un
ion was born eight children, four
girls and four boys, all of whom are

living, viz: Zeb, DaviSj Ellis, and
Morris, and Mrs. A. J. Lee, Mrs.
Laura Fisher and Mrs. Wm. Meece,
all of whom attended the funeral
"Aunt Liz," as she was called, was
a real type of pre-war times, "A
Mother in Israel." She saw and per
sonally experienced the trials and
hardships of the entire Civil War
days between the States in which war
her said husband served in loyal
and faithful service during the en
tire term. She joined the Baptist
church when a young woman and was
ever a faithful and consistent mem
ber of the same.
She lived each day as if it were
"the last day," and she lived the last
day just as she had lived the past
She had been an invalid for the
last five years of her life, caused by

lured this ordeal with the same forti

?d the trials and sufferings of the
Civil War days.
But on June the 3rd she quietly
folded her earthly mantle about her,
md passed to her reward "beyond
that shore from whose borne no trav
eller ever returns." On the 4th day
3f June her funeral was conducted by
Rev. Judson Corn at Old Toxaway
:hurch ? in the presence of her chil
dren and friends, and she was bur
ied in the old graveyard on the hill
beside her husband who had preceded
her eleven years ago; also beside her
father and mother and kindred who
had long since been buried there,
awaiting her coming.
Thus the community has lost a
valuable and kind neighbor, the
church a faithful member, the chil
dren an affectionate and loving
May God in His mercy comfort
the bereaved family and temper the
chilly winds to lonely children.
