Goodson, Catherine and Infant, Obituary, 1897, Raleigh, NC Gazette

Goodson Catherine Obituary 1897 Raleigh NC Gazette

Mrs. Catharine Goodson, wife of Mr, S. G. Goodson, of Denver, departed this life on the 8th of February, at 1 o clock, A. M. She was a faithful member of the M. E. Church, and lived a consistent Christian life. She was beloved by all who knew her. She leaves a husband and seven children to mourn for her. Her body is only asleep within the tomb, and her spirit has gone to the Paridistical region on high, where God and the angles dwell. The bereaved family have our heartfelt sympathy, she cannot return to them, but they can go to her.
Ou the 12th of February, the little infant of Mr. S. G. Goodson, went to join its mother in the sweet Beulah Land, who had just gone before. What a greeting with the angles. Sleep on, sweet babe, until the general resurrection day.
