Elizajane C. Shackleford

Also, on April 30, Died, ELIZAJANE C. SHACKLEFORD, daughter of B. W. Stone, and wife of Alexander Shackleford, in Maysville, Ky. aged 23 years and 11 months.  She had been baptized on the profession of her faith in Christ a few years ago–lived the life of a Christian and died in the fearless and triumphant hope of immortality.  Her warm affection–her cheerful temper–her modest, unassuming conversation–her patience in suffering–her devotedness to her God, her parents, her husband, her sisters, brothers, and friends, were surpassed but by few.  These endeared her in life–these will endear her memory to surviving friends.  She and her infant daughter which died the evening before, sleep in the same coffin, interred in the same grave.

The Christian Messenger June 1831, vol 5 no 6, page 143.
