Mary Priscilla (Johnston) Cartwright 1840-1878

A Memorial on the Anniversary of her Death at Age 37

"One year ago today were consigned to rest the mortal remains of Mary P. J. Cartwright (born Johnston). I had hoped that an abler pen than mine would have spoken of this noble women. “Who can tell if the best of men be known? Or whether there be not more remarkable persons forgot than any that stand recorded in the known account of time? The subject of this brief notice was the daughter of D.C. Johnston, artist, long known and esteemed in our community and sister to Thos. M. Johnston whose early death was so much lamented for he was respected and beloved by all whose privilege it was to know him. They sleep side by side in the old cemetery of St. Augustine. They loved in life [and] in death are not divided. The grand old elms wave over their ashes as they have over their kindred dust for many long years. They sleep in the sepulcher of their fathers."

March 22nd 1879 - The author is unknown but is likely a family member since this marked up draft was found in the family papers.
