I found this obituary for this young girl. Maybe you could post to the memorial. Thank you. Mary

Article appears in The Abingdon Virginian, Abingdon, Virginia, Friday, 20 May 1864 reads...

Died, of diphtheritis, in this county, on the 5th of March, 1864, at the residence of her father, Miss Catharine Orr, daughter of Robert Clark, aged 26 years. Few ever lived of her age more generally loved and admired for those elements of character rendering. her disposition eminently generous, cheerful and affectionate, and the death of such a one imposes a painful bereavement, not only upon those nearest to her related, but upon all who claimed to be of her acquaintance. Having illustrated an exemplary devotion and consistency of membership in the Presbyterian Church five years previous to. her decease, all who beheld her in that dark and trying hour, could not fail to witness a complete triumph of Christianity over death. After she had suffered from a protracted illness of two months, attended with several intervals of apparent decline in the fatal character of her disease, she was finally apprised of her hopeless condition, without the tone of so appalling a notice, causing her to utter one word of regret or expression of fear. With a coolness of mind rarely discovered under such circumstances, she gave directions as to how her remains should be attired for interment, and even selected the hymns to be sung at the exercises of her funeral ceremonies. Before taking leave of her friends, she admonished all in a lively, christian spirit, to live uprightly and prepare to rejoin her where eternal peace and beatitude constitute the rich reward of the faithful and redeemed.

Dear Kate, all they favorite walks of life miss thee now, as they never missed thee before. We never dreamed before that the absence of thy form - the sweet influence of thy social mood and gentle words and smiles, would ever weigh down our hearts with so much sorrow and loneliness.

We would gladly waft to thy spirit above, invitations to return to earth again; but what are the attractions of earth to thee, compared to the gorgeous scenes and enchanting melodies over pervading and thrilling the angelic throng, while chanting praise to God and the Lamb.

Kate, to see thee again, we must go from earth to heaven, the way so beautifully designated by the charm and lustre of thy chaste and christian example. E.J.G.

I found this obituary for this lady. Maybe you will add to the memorial. Thank you. Mary

Article appears in The Abingdon Virginian, Abingdon, Virginia, Friday, 15 January 1864 reads...

Mrs. May Allison was born in Scotland in 1800 - died at her residence near Glade Spring Depot, Virginia, November 26th, 1863.

In the management of her domestic affairs, she had but few equals, and perhaps no superior. She was a very affectionate mother, a kind mistress and a good neighbor. She had been a regular and consistent member of the Presbyterian Church for more than twenty years. She died in the full triumph of a living faith. Her end was peace.

Susan Kemper Freeman
I am a descendant of a sibling of Susan Kemper Freeman. Judging from your profile and a rational number of memorials, you probably are very knowledgeable about her and her family. I have spent many yrs on Kemper people from Germanna and Fauquier. I will gladly share what I have.

L K King
Kings, McElvaines, Neff, Osborn Families
Your name "Kansas Girl" caught my eye. I also live in Kansas and are researching the above names - and all of their other families. I married into the King Family - Pratt County, KS and have 2 sons. I have done a lot of work on this family - in fact I think I found your name on Maria Magdalena Carbaugh Find A Grave Memorial. She is the 4x great grandmother of my sons.
Would like to hear back from you and possibly exchange information.

James Clark
Anne Branson married 11 Sept 1796 Washington Co, VA to James Clark. The Minister was Edward Crawford, a Presbyterian Minister at Rock Spring Church on Holstein. Do you have any information about them? Also if anyone descended from a James Clark of Washington Co, VA around this time - after the 1796 marriage - and has tested DNA Please contact me
