Yancey, Agnes B. (Tanner) Hawkins

Mrs. Agnes B. Yancey, wife of Mr. Wm. Yancey of Columbus, and
grandmother of THE MERCURY editor, died at the family residence in
Columbus last Saturday morning, after a long and painful illness, and
was buried at 4 o'clock that afternoon at the the city cemetery. She was
a most estimable lady, kind-hearted and charitable to a fault, ever
ready to aid and comfort those in distress, and though an invalid for
years, bore up with christian fortitude until called to that eternal
home above. Peace to her memory! [Interment in Columbus City Cemetery]

Yancey, Nathan


Editor Citizen:
Please allow me space in your paper to say a few words concerning the
death of NAT, YANCEY, which sad event occurred on h 19th of November,
1881, at 5 1/2 o'clock in the morning. He had the unremitting care and
attention of Dr. Harrison, who did all he could for him, but without
avail, for the Angel of Death had marked him for his own. At half-past 4
o'clock Nat. commenced prayer meeting, and he called on one and another
to pray, to the last. Nat was good and a hard-working boy, and he has
left us all in sorrow and sadness over his untimely demise; but we are
in hopes that he has gone to a better home than this world. His age was
20 years, 4 months and 19 days. He was buried in the city cemetery
<http://www.rootsweb.com/~txcolora/cemeteries/columbuscitycem.htm>; in
the evening by mourning relatives and friends.

Yancey, Richard


At Columbus, on the 2d day of July, 1875, at the City Hotel, RICHARD,
youngest son of William and Agnes Yancey.

"Whom the Gods love die young," was said of yore.
And many deaths do they escape by this:
The death of Friends, and that which slays even more,
The death of Friendship, Love, Youth--all that is
Excep' mere breath; and since the silent shore
Awaits at last even those whom longest miss
The old Archer's shafts, perhaps the early grave
Which men weep over may be meant to save."
