Cownes. On Tuesday, January 14, 1896 at 12:15 p.m., Rebecca Cownes in the 64th year of her age.
     Day by day we saw her fade
     And gently pass away;
     Yet often in our hearts we prayed
     That she would with us stay.

     It's hard we know to give her up
     But we must strive to bear the pain
     Our dearest mother is at rest,
     Where all can meet again.
          By Her Children
Funeral will take place from her late residence, 1228 2nd St. S.W. at 2:30 p.m. on Thursday the 16th instant (Fredericksburg and Staunton, Va. papers please copy).
