Obituary - Miss Rosa Jennings, daughter of Judge A.P. Jennings, died of comsumption at the residence of her father, in Caldwell, August 1, 1883, aged 21 years and two months.
She was well known as a very amiable and intelligent young lady, a favorite among young and old of her acquaintance. She united with the M.E. Church several years ago, and ever since maintained a Christian deportment of the liveliest character. Her last words to a friend were, "I am happy, (her last audible words were 'Heavenly Father, help thy Child.) A large audience attended the funeral services, which were conducted by Rev. S.A. Fisher, assisted by Rev. Geo. Wilson. Rev. Fisher preached from Col. 1-12; a very beautiful discourse, bring out a number of new and apparently original thoughts upon a future and higher life.
Her young lady friends decorated the church and the casket with beautiful flowers and vines; a choir changed a requim and sang a number of selections during the services. The leave-taking was solemn and very impressive. her entire readiness to die, her unlimited faith and trust seemed to entirely dispel the usual terrirs that brood over the scene of death.
