The piano I advertised for. sale last
week was sold on Friday, the day the
paper appeared, and I had so many

This old, old, old lady, who . has
been confined to her bed for thirteen
years,'-totally blind during all this
time, and very deaf, was a young
woman in the '60's.
Born Penina Stallings, in 1840, she
married Harvey Nixon in early girl
hood and when the war broke out the
couple were the parents of a little
son. Leaving his young wife and
child, Harvey Nixon joined the Con
federate Army. The young wife
waited in vain for her husband's re
turn from the war. Wounded in
battle in 1864, he died shortly there
after and soon after the message
came his second son was born.
Both boys grew to manhood and
the child who never saw his father,
W. H. Nixon, 72 years old at the time
of the death of his mother, survives
her, together with eight grandchil
dren, twenty great-grandchildren and
six great-great grandchildren.
Funeral services were conducted
from th6 home on Sunday afternoon,
with the Rev. A. A. Butler, pastor of
Whiteville Grove Baptist Church,
conducting the service, and burial fol
lowed in the family burying ground.
Pallbearers were Dempsey White
and Celus Nixon, of Norfolk, Va.,
Wilbur Owens, Ben Owens, Elmer
Twine and George Carver, all of Perquimans.
