Atlanta Argus, December 1886

Martha Ann Tuttle

Died, Dec. 27, 1886 at her late residence, in McLean Co., four miles east of Atlanta, Mrs. Martha Ann Tuttle. The deceased was born in this state Jan. 17, 1840 - was the daughter of Mrs. M.A. Mills, who still survives her. She became religious early in life, and was married to G.H. Tuttle May 15, 1856, to whom she was devoted to the last. She was possessed of many noble qualities which endeared her to all who knew her. She was a devoted companion, and safe counselor; a kind and loving mother, and a benevolent Christian and neighbor. She leaves a faithful, affectionate husband, one son and two daughters and a multitude of relatives and friends to mourn her untimely departure. She had been a great sufferer from dyspepsia and diabetes insipadus. She once told the writer that she could not find language to describe her sufferings. It is therefore a matter of consolation to know that death came as a messenger of peace to the suffering. After all, there is some sunshine even in death. Free from its' sting, it is the welcome visitor of every sufferer. Her death, though untimely, was triumphant and extremely peaceful. Not a single struggle or sign of distress to be seen; she quietly fell asleep. Precious be her memory, peace be unto her ashes, and eternal rest to her spirit. Her funeral was preached by the writer, Wednesday, the 19th at 2 o'clock, at Roach's Chapel, from Hebrews 21:9, in the presence of a large and sympathizing audience. Gentle reader, "be ye also ready"
