Following is a transcription of the above person's (TN) obituary from the Fentress County Gazette, Jamestown, Fentress Co., TN, dated 10/01/1896:
On the 26th of September the cold hands of death laid its grip on little Manzy Ethel MOODY, infant daughter of Bates and Vina MOODY. She was taken sick Sept. 20th, and only lived six days. She was two months and four days old.
A little while before she died she cast her eyes on her mamma and laughed, as though she knew her and knew she was going to die. She is mourned by a host of friends and relatives.
Byrdstown, Sept. 28, 1896
