Frances Stuart McTeer departed this life in Wytheville, Va., Feb. 27, 1882, at 2 o’clock P.M., and was buried in Wytheville Cemetery Feb. 28, 1882. She was a daughter of Gen. Alexander Smyth, and granddaughter of James Smyth, who was a clergyman in the Episcopal Church, and was sent by the authorities of the Episcopal Government to Botetourt parish, which embraces the counties west of the Blue Ridge. Sister McTeer was born on Cripple Creek, Va., on Mountain Park Farm, Wythe County, Dec. 2, 1806, and was 75 years and near 3 months old when she died. Her parents gave her advantages of education and early culture which were improved and kept up through life, so that she was one of the most intelligent and cultivated women in the country, and her association was much sought and enjoyed. On Feb. 9, 1824, she was married to Col. James F. Piper, who died Sept. 8, 1854. On March 2, 1857, she was married to Rev. J. M. McTeer, of the Holston Conference, with whom she lived happily until the close of life. Sister McTeer made a profession of religion and joined the Methodist Church at Asbury Camp-ground in Wythe county, Va., August, 1840; and this place and time was ever held sacred by her, and she never missed but one camp-meeting at that place in 42 years, and this was on account of sickness. She also kept a memorandum of the sermons she had heard preached, and by whom. Her entry book closes with sermons preached at the camp-meeting last September. She kept her membership on the Wytheville Circuit and seemed to feel a peculiar interest in the members of the Church and preachers of that circuit. From the time of her conversion to the close of her life she lived a consistent Christian. When she joined the Church she consecrated all to the Church. Her house was immediately open for the traveling minister, and in her parlor at Speedwell the Methodist preachers preached and held class-meetings until the church was built at that place. For the last 25 years she has encouraged her husband in faithfully preaching the gospel, and it was her greatest desire that he might go out and preach Christ again as in other days. She was often called upon in the congregation, and her prayers were attended with power. She was one who surely reflected the image of Jesus, and the light of her influence will linger for years yet to come. Wytheville society has lost a delightful charm, and Wytheville Circuit one of its most useful members; but we expect to see her again, for she sleeps in Jesus.

Mrs. HANNAH BOTTOMLEY, 1805-1882:
The death of Mrs. Hannah Bottomley, wife of Rev. Thomas Bottomley, of the Louisville Conference, which occurred July 2, at the residence of their son-in-law, Mr. F. J. Brownnell, in Hopkinsville, Ky., has removed a lady well known and much esteemed by a large circle of friends and relatives. She was born in England in 1805, married there in 1824, and came to America in 1829. They lived for awhile in New York, then in New Jersey, afterward for several years in Maryland, and removed to Kentucky in 1840. Her husband was admitted on trial into the Kentucky Conference that year, and has been continuously a member ever since of it, and of the Louisville Conference, his wife being his inseparable companion in all his travels, and his efficient assistant in all his labors.

Their married life extended over a period of fifty-eight years, and they were the parents of seven children, and yet, until her decease, death had entered the household but once, removing a little daughter who died in Maryland many years ago. She had great force of character, a well-defined and joyous religious experience, clear and sound views of Bible-teaching, and both the disposition and the capacity to do much for the Master’s cause. Her love-feast talks were "in demonstration of the Spirit," and her public prayers were "in power." I have never known anyone else so successful in leading penitents to fully and promptly trust the Saviour as she used to be in revival-meetings. She was paralyzed in 1876, and has been an almost helpless invalid ever since; but often during these weary years was rapturously happy in God, and eager for her release. About twelve days before her death a second cerebral congestion began its stealthy approach, and steadily progressed with its work until the soul took its flight.

Her remains were interred in the Eastern (Methodist) Cemetery of this city on Tuesday last, ten of her husband’s ministerial associates joining in the simple but impressive burial-service. Very Truly,

David Morton
Louisville, Ky., July 7, 1882
