God Bless America



At his residence in this county, a few days since, Mr. John Barlow, aged about 30 years.  Mr. Barlow was for a long time afflicted with the Scrofula so that he was compelled to visit New Orleans for medical relief.  The Scrofula on the side of his face was cut out by Dr. Luzenburg, which soon gave him a short temporary relief, but it soon broke out all over his body which terminated his life.


At his residence on Hinds County on the 8th of Pulmonary Consumption, William Beesley in the 37th years of his age.   The deceased has left a wife and four children to mourn his loss.


In this county on Thursday last after a painful and protracted illness, Mrs. Judith Webb, consort of William R. Webb of this county.


Suddenly, in this county, on Friday morning the 11th, at the residence of her father, Mr. James Smith, Mrs. Sarah Evans.


In Grand Gulf, Claiborne County, Mississippi on Sunday the 28th, Joseph Napolean, infant son of Robert C. and Nancy C.P. Hume, age eleven months.


On the same day, Margaret Matilda, only daughter of Dr. Trawack of this county, age one year and ten months, at the residence of her father near Georgetown.


Published in the July 11, 1840 Southern Star in Copiah County, MS.


Transcriber’s note:  Scrofula was an infection of the lymph nodes of the neck caused by tuberculosis.  Surgery can cause it to spread to other organs.  At the time, it was a fatal disease.  I believe that this John Barlow was the son of John Barlow and Lydia Bryant.  He was married to Mary Millsaps.


Pulmonary Consumption was another term for tuberculosis.


Margaret Matilda Trawack was the first child born to Cornelius Trawack and his wife Mary Rogers Catching.
