BROWN, Mary (d. 1819)

DIED, in Jones County, on Sunday the eleventh inst. Mrs. Mary BROWN, the amiable wife of Isaac BROWN, Esq.  In the death of this excellent woman, female society has lost one of its brightest ornaments, the neighborhood a dear friend, and her weeping relations are left to mourn their irreparable loss.  Possessed of all those amiable qualities, that adorn and beautify the female sex, she was excelled by none, in the practical exercise of piety, virtue & benevolence.  A mild, meek and  humble devotion to the doctrines and principles of the holy religion of the Lamb of God, at all times characterised her conduct and conversation; and we trust and believe, that her immortal spirit, which but a few days since was confined within the frail tabernacle of mortality, and agonized by death and disease, has now “winged its flight, on pinions of love,” to the mansions of etherial [sic] bliss; and is now in the full fruition of all the joys of heaven, which are prepared for the faithful followers, of the blessed Jesus, where “wicked cease from troubling, and the weary are at rest.” — A Friend.
