FORRESTER, Elizabeth A., (Mrs.)—Judge Wm. BULLARDS mother, died on August 9, and was burried in the M. C. Church Cemetery at this place on the 11th.  Rev.

ASHE, Jennie—was born December 8th, 1864 in Claiborne County and died at her home near Burrville, Aug. 18, 1924.  She was married to D. M. JACKS in 1882.  Of this union there is one son, Claude of Chattanooga.  She was again married to David B. ASHE, December 22, 1895.  Of this union there are two sons and one daughter, Floyd and Gertrude of Knoxville and Fred of Sunbright.  She was the daughter of Rev. John FOURESTER and leaves seven brothers and two sisters.  She professed faith in Christ at Somerset, Ky., in 1903 and joined the M. E. Church and left her membership at Spring City.  She never came in too late at night for Family Prayer.  I would to God that all our homes had time to pray at night.  Her father was a M. E. Circuit rider and in the fall, before his death, he rode horseback from his home near Burrville to Maryville to be at annual Conference and two weeks before her death, she walked about two miles to hear the gospel preached.  Mrs. ASHE was loved by all who knew her and was laid to rest in the Sunbright Cemetery beneath a mound of beautiful flowers.  The funeral was conducted by the writer.  [Signed]  Rev. D. A. SPESSARD.  [Morgan County Press, 9/5/1924, Vol. 7, No. 7]
