Last Tuesday night about forty neighbors of Mr. Lum TAYLOR, who lives three
miles north of Dresden and is the son of Mr. Green TAYLOR, gathered at his
home to congratulate him on his acquittal by Judge MAIDEN on an indictment
charging him with obstructing a public road. The proof showed that the road
fenced in was private property and had never been declared a public road.
One witness, Uncle Bob McCLAIN, who formerly owned the land, stated that he
didn't know that there was a road or land there at all. Squire Bob FREEMAN
was on hand with a wagon load of fine watermelons, which were greatly
enjoyed.

DRESDEN ENTERPRISE
Death Relieves Long Suffering

Uncle Green Taylor, 86 years of age, died Sunday at the home of his
grandson, Clarence Taylor, near Dresden, after many months of illness. Mr.
Taylor had been confined to his bed for a long period, though he appeared
perfectly resigned and some time ago requested that after death no funeral
service be held over his remains, stating that he had endeavored all through
life to preach his own funeral. His had been a long and honored career. He
was upright in all his dealings and died as he had lived - without an enemy.
The remains were laid to rest Tuesday at Blooming Grove. There are eleven
children, as follows: J.J., T.E., Dock, S.A. and a son in Mississippi; Mrs.
Woody Dunlap, Mrs. Mattie Insco, Mrs. Bud Duke, Mrs. Elbert Heathcoat, Mrs.
A. H. Insco and Mrs. Ad Burroughs. It is estimated that he leaves 200
grand, great and great great grand children. Two aged brothers, Messrs. Ben
and John Taylor, near Sharon, survive him.

>Obituary:

MARTHA ANN ELIZABETH TAYLOR
Mrs. Martha Ann Elizabeth Taylor, daughter of S.C.(G) and Sarah J.
Taylor, was born Jan. 8, 1860; died Sept. 9, 1930; age 70 years, 8 months
and one day. She was married to John R. Anderson, Jan 15, 1878. To this
union was born two children, Alice, a baby girl having died in infancy,
and Willie, living to be twenty years. After Mr. Anderson's death she was
married to Mr. W.C. Insco Nov. 21, 1901. This union was very happy and
continued for ten years, when Mr. Insco departed this life. She was later
married to Mr. Albert Maubray. Early in life she made a public profession
of religion and at the age of 18 united with the Corinth Baptist church,
where she remained a loyal member until death. Mrs. Insco, as she was
commonly known, was of a large and highly respected family of this
community. She leaves four brothers, Mr. James J. Taylor, T.E. Taylor,
S.A. Taylor, of Dresden; Mr. A. M. Taylor of Scoobe, Miss., one
brother, Mr. C.C. Taylor, having preceded her to the grave.
Mrs. Insco's life was a great inspiration to us all. She truly walked by
faith and not by sight, proving to us all that she sought a city which
hath foundations and whose builder and maker is God. She never complained
in her sufferings and seemed to be perfectly reconciled to God's
providential dealings with her, dying in a triumphant faith of God and the
immortality of the soul. Let's "lift up out heads, for, behold our
Redemption draweth nigh," and "weep not for her as one who had no hope."

Martha Ann was a member of the Corinth Baptist Church since 1878.
