A number of friends of the family from Charlotte accompanied the funeral party. Many relatives and friends were present at the interment, where Rev. Mr. Smith concluded the burial service.

Just before the Civil War she was married to Capt. T. E. Ashcraft and for many years they lived on the farm in Lanes Creek township, seven miles south of Marshville, where Mr. J. C. Huggins now lives. About the year 1890 her son, Charlie Ashcraft, then a young man and a school teacher, contracted typhoid fever and died. Two other younger sons, John and Ernest Ashcraft, were also stricken and died the same summer. Capt. Ashcraft died several years later in a hospital.
