Following is a transcription of the above person's (TN) obituary from the Sumner County News, Gallatin, Sumner Co., TN, dated Thursday 12/03/1925:
Aunt Ellen DILLARD.
The passing of Ellen DILLARD at her home on Trigg street, November 30, removed a most worthy representative of her race. To white and black she was known as "Mammy Ellen" and her life had been one of industry and devotion to duty. Capable, willing and dependable, she responded to the call of those who needed her, even to the end of the way and many will miss her faithful ministrations.
