GLEAVES, Malvina Crockett died November 19, 1870

A Mother In Israel Gone


Mrs. Malvina Gleaves, relict of Major James T. Gleaves, and mother of our friends Dr. Sam'l , Major G. Wythe, and Capt. Robert H. Gleaves, died at her residence on Cripple creek [sic], on Saturday last, Nov. 19th, aged 70 years and 10 days.  Her death was caused by a severe attack of pneumonia.  Mrs. Gleaves had been for many years an exemplary member of the Evangelical Luthern [sic] church, and died in the full hope of a blessed immortality beyond the grave.  Her death causes sorrow to the hearts of a very large family connection and a wide circle of friends throughout the county.  The bereaved by this sad affliction have our warmest sympathies.
