September 9, 1840 - Fayetteville Observer
This old obituary I found in an old Bible which belonged to
Miss Sudie Pickett of Fayetteville, my great great aunt. The obituary references a Mrs. D. Picket and a Miss
Comfort Pickett both of Bladen County who died one day apart. The clipping does not show the year. It does
feature the obituary for Elizabeth Autry, wife of Theophilus Autry and daughter of Matthew Crumpler. She was
also mother-in-law to Robert Tolar.
Obit mentions Matthew Crumpler of Sampson; Mrs. D. Picket of Bladen; Miss Comfort Pickett of Bladen; James J.
Averitt; Andrew Durham & Millan Durham
