Mrs. Frank LAWSON Dies at Johnson Mines
Aged and Respected Woman Goes to Eternal Reward After Short Illness; Funeral on Sunday
Mrs. Elvira Murrell LAWSON, 70 years of age and wife of the late Frank LAWSON, died at her home with her two younger daughters, Misses Sue and Ella LAWSON in the Johnson's Mine community, 12 miles northeast of this place on last Saturday afternoon. The remains were interred at the Grays Bend cemetery on Sunday afternoon, funeral services being in charge of Elder Charles Tidwell of Centreville, and many friends of the family attending the last sad rites.
Deceased was a highly respected Christian character, a member of the Church of Christ many years, and beloved by all who knew her. She is survived by eight children, the two daughters mentioned and two others, Mrs. Eva Lawson MCCORD of Nashville, and Mrs. Annie Lawson GREER of Dickson County; and four sons, James, Will, Burkett and Frank LAWSON. She is also survived by an aged sister, Mrs. Sue Murrell PETTY of Nashville. The husband and father died many years ago following the tragic death of a daughter who was burned to death at their home at Iron Hill in the extreme northern part of this county.
