    * Obituary *
    Mrs. Bettie Sivills Cunningham died at the home of her son, Dr. W. C. Cunningham, in this city, last Thursday night of the infirmities of old age. Mrs. Cunningham was born in Trigg County, where she had lived all her life and would have been ninety years old the 23rd of April. She was the widow of the late Mickins Cunningham, who preceded her to the grave over sixteen years (ago). She was the last of a number of brothers and sisters to depart of this life, and was a Daughter of the Revolution. Her father, Thomas Sivills, fought through the Revolutionary War, and was in the Battle of New Orleans. She was married in 1832 to Mickins Cunningham and to that union nine children were born, four of whom survive her. They are R. W. Cunningham, Dr. W. C. Cunningham, Mrs. C. T. Hendrick, and Mrs. Missouri Hendrick, all of this county. In 1836 she professed faith in Christ and united with the Baptist Church at a school house on Hurricane Creek and was one of the charter members of the old Hurricane Baptist Church, and lived a consecrated member of the church until the end. She had found a good fight, had kept the faith, and closed her eyes on earth to peace with all mankind and with her Master. She leaves four children, forty-nine grandchildren, eighty-nine great grandchildren, and six great-great grandchildren. She has seen seven generations, which can be said only be a few. Her remains were laid to rest last Friday afternoon in the old family graveyard on Hurricane Creek, amid a large crowd of sorrowing relatives and friends.
